Keep open Westpac Ruatōrea

This petition had 2,108 supporters

Westpac is proposing the closure of its Ruatōrea branch, the last bank on the East Coast.

Yet the local community wants to keep its bank. Without it locals will have to drive more than 100km to the nearest bank.

Last year Westpac New Zealand made a record profit. This year they've already made more than $440 million in profit. They can afford to keep open the Ruatōrea branch.  

With low internet access and phone connection rates on the East Coast, physical branches are where most banking needs are met for locals.

The locals want their branch to remain open and the bank can afford to meet their needs. Banking is a vital service.

Sign the petition now and tell the bosses in Sydney and Auckland that the locals want to keep Westpac Ruatōrea open.
