So, as part of my Christmas preparations I needed a €100 note to accompany a card. No point in going to my local shop, I thought, better go straight to the local AIB bank and get a nice, crispy, brand new note.
No, sorry, we don’t deal in €100 notes.
What…but you’re a bank? You’re supposed to hold all currency denominations to serve your customers.
Sorry, we do get €100 notes from customers but we don’t hold them directly. Try the Post Office, Credit Union or maybe your local supermarket.
So, back to my local supermarket.
Yes Anthony, we do have €100 notes, how many would you like?
Happy Christmas and a very prosperous New Year to everybody.
