Nationwide is set to relocate to a “bigger and better site” in Wrexham town centre.

The Building Society has revealed that it is relocating from its current location on High Street to the former Clarks and Yeomans stores on Regent Street.

Work converting the two properties at 21 to 23 has been underway for several months, with plans to convert the two shops from retail use to Class A1 Retail to Class A2 Financial and Professional Services.

The plans, which were submitted at the start of the year showed that the two properties would be merged into one, with the removal of the between them.

In a fresh planning application submitted for approval, it has been confirmed that Nationwide will be occupying the premises.

In the plans submitted to Wrexham Council planning permission is being sought for the display of new signage.

We contacted Nationwide to find out if the new location would also mean the closure of the smaller and current branch on the High Street.

A spokesperson for Nationwide Building Society said: “We’re committed to serving our members in Wrexham and are pleased to confirm that work is underway for a brand new Nationwide Building Society branch on Regent Street.

“We’ll be relocating everyone from our current branch on the High Street to a bigger, better site and we’ll keep our members updated as these exciting plans develop.”

The new planning application will be considered for approval at a later date.
