A long time staple of downtown Belleville is closing its doors.

The Royal Bank of Canada on Front Street will shut for good March 17, 2017.

RBC Regional Vice President Randy Trednick confirmed employees and business will merge with the North Front location, which is two kilometres from the downtown branch.

Trednick explained as consumer banking habits have changed, they have expanded their online and mobile channels and adjusted their branches.

He said they will focus to minimize the inconvenience for clients and employees during the transition.

The final day of operation in the downtown will be Thursday March 16.
