The Unicaja has confirmed that it is closing down its branch in Mojácar Pueblo, meaning there will now be no banks whatsoever in the village from May 24th. The bank manager of the surviving branch on the beach says that they are still unsure if they will keep a cash dispenser open on the old site.
When I first came here, there were two banks in the pueblo. One was the Caja de Ahorros y Monte de Piedad de Almería (Unicaja that was) and the other was a rather dodgy bank from Murcia with only a couple of branches. The joke was that it gave wooden cheques. It didn't last long. Later, the Banesto and the Banco de Jeréz (this was a Rumasa bank... also went bust) had branches in the pueblo.
Now, seems like we're back to wooden cheques.
