Does Bankwest still have an east coast branch expansion program?

A number of years ago, there was talk of an active east coast branch expansion.

 

Is this program still occuring?

 

What is Queensland's most northern branch?

Good question @cgmitchell. We did rapidly grow our presence on the east coast over the past few years however, while we continually review our store locations to ensure we're in the most optimal locations to service the highest number of our customers, this focus on expansion has returned to a 'business as usual' approach.

 

I think North Lakes is our most northern location in QLD at the moment. Quite a few ATMs further north of this location though.

That's a shame @PeteW.  It would be great if Bankwest had stores in key cities in each state.  E.g. Cairns or Townsville in Queensland for instance.

 

What does the 'business as usual' approach mean?

By 'business as usual' I simply mean we don't have that same growth strategy in place where we were moving into the east coast market. We've managed to establish ourselves there over recent years and we'll now take a similar approach to our west coast presence in that we don't constantly/rapidly open new stores. We continually assess our current locations @cgmitchell and ensure we have a presence where the greatest number of our customers need us.
