Garanti Lunchtime Closing

I have had an email telling me ( I think: "Şube hizmet saatlerimiz düzenlendi ) that Garanti Bank in Fethiye will be closing for lunch henceforth.

There is a certain logic to that, because lunchtime is their busiest time, so if they close that will get rid of the lunchtime rush. I thought this sort of thing was the business practice of 50 years ago. Ho Hum.

Re: Garanti Lunchtime Closing

Must be one of the few banks here Ian that doesnt close for lunch already! Our local lokantas are packed out between 1230 and 1330 with bank staff after they have closed the doors for their lunch hour.

Re: Garanti Lunchtime Closing

It means that they can be fully staffed before and after the lunch break giving better service than with staggered lunch breaks. Probably longer on Friday when they can go to the mosque too.

They used to use that sort of logic in UK many years ago: you close when most people have a break from work to get to the bank. I guess it is a way to force people towards Internet banking and close branches; if you are not open when ordinary people can get to you, they will have to do business in other ways.

Re: Garanti Lunchtime Closing

It actually translates as "Our branch service hours have been created", colloquially "smoothed or straightened out" doesn't say anything about lunchtime closing so might be a good idea to look at the opening hours posted on the door.

Sorry, the other part of the email is a graphic showing a clock with the lunchtime blocked out, which, with my poor Turkish language skills, led me to my interpretation.
