  • Take another look. Royal has permantely closed branches. Two i know of , One at Main and Whitney and another on Concession and 23rd on the Mountain. Whitney has a for sale sign, I’m not sure about the other. Also of note has Royal leaving Jackson Square downtown Hamilton after over 40 years to move to the 2nd tower of Commerce Place at King and James. Meanwhile back at Jacson Square the Branch has closed mall access and elinated handicapped access to its teller service. (
