The bank said the decision had been made because only between 89 and 113 customers were using the branches exclusively for their banking, that the number of counter transactions had decreased, and people were also using other ways to bank, including online and by phone.
The bank previously announced that its Cullompton branch was to shut on 1 September.

Totnes beggars 'returning donated food to shops to get cash from refunds'
Beggars in Totnes have been taking food handed out to them and getting money for it by returning to shops it was bought from for refunds, local police say.
The move was among a number of activities revealed by local police who said on Facebook they were continuing to work "to deal with street begging and other anti-social behaviour associated with drug use".
Other activities apparently included one person trying to "busk" by hitting a saucepan with a stick.
Totnes Police said: "We are helping individuals engage with drug and alcohol support services by removing some of the barriers they face in getting that help, and likewise with housing."
Fancy doing some moor stargazing?
A stargazing event will be held on Bodmin Moor to mark its being officially announced as an International Dark Sky Landscape.
The event, run by
Caradon and Tolcarn Observatories, will be held at the Jamaica Inn on Saturday.
The stargazing will begin at 20:30 and would be a "breathtaking experience", Dr Wayne
Thomas of Caradon Observatory said.
The moor was granted the status in July, making it the fourth Dark Sky Park in the UK, and the 44th in the world.
The main purpose of the designation is to protect the quality of the sky over the moor.
Marcus Hutchins: Security researcher to live in Los Angeles until next court appearance
BBC's North America Correspondent
The Devon cyber-security researcher accused in the US of creating and selling malware will live in Los Angeles - where his employer is based - until his next court appearance, scheduled for 17 October.
Among his fellow computer experts, Mr Hutchins is regarded as a hero for his role in stopping the so-called WannaCry virus which spread to 150 countries in May.
He appeared in a packed federal courtroom in Milwaukee on Monday to deny writing and distributing computer code designed to steal banking details in 2014 and 2015.
The judge said he could be released on bail. He will have to wear a GPS tracker and will not be allowed to leave the country, but has been permitted to access the internet so he can continue his cyber-security work.
He was arrested at Las Vegas airport two weeks ago before he was due to fly home from the city where he had been attending a cyber-security conference.
Residents in Wadebridge and Padstow (pictured) are being urged to make their views known about what they want for the future of their area.
They have less than a week now respond to a Cornwall Council questionnaire distributed through the area.
The council said the survey would "help us set targets for areas they think need improving and to provide better value for money".
It closes for submissions next Monday.
Begging 'busker' seen in Totnes 'playing' saucepan and stick
Police in Totnes say beggars are being "more robust" in their attempts to get cash by getting busking licences and, in one instance, "busking" by hitting an upside down saucepan with a stick.
Officers said earlier this year they were cracking down on begging after several reported cases of shoppers being aggressively harassed and threatened with violence by beggars who were apparently making up to a £100 a day.
Police said on Facebook they were still seeing individuals coming in via train or bus from elsewhere "as they see Totnes as a soft touch".
They warned that there was a code of practice for busking licences, and that licences would be revoked "if this 'busking' is causing a public nuisance".
They added that they were also concerned that this activity would "deter genuinely talented buskers performing in the town centre".
Primark sets the record straight on pronunciation
Now, is it "Pry-mark" or "Pree-mark"?
How to pronounce the budget retailer's name has caused a basket-load of debate, with some claiming "Pry-mark" is an upmarket affectation. Others say "Pree-mark" is a northern thing.
However, this is a little unsettling for at least one person - me.
I was brought up in Belfast, where there has been a city centre branch for as long as I can remember, and the company was founded in the Irish Republic, opening its first store in Dublin in 1969 (although under the name Penneys).
However, it has always locally - in Northern Ireland and the Irish Republic, I think - been "Pree-mark".
Indeed, my sister told me off only last week for "mispronouncing it" Pry-mark, although it now transpires that I was actually correct - albeit completely inadvertently as the product of living in Britain for decades.
Sunny spells will become more widespread this afternoon and with west or northwesterly winds mainly light or moderate through the day, it will also feel a little warmer. Maximum temperature: 19C (66F).
Tonight, it'll be mostly dry with some clear spells at first. However, it will become more cloudy from the west later in the night as high cloud increases and may result in a light shower developing by morning. Winds will be light or moderate from the southwest, but will freshen and back to the south later. Minimum temperature: 12C (54F).
Council officials are out on Cornwall's beaches this summer, armed with new powers to fine people flouting dog bans.
Seasonal bans have been around on some beaches for years, but this summer is the first when new Public Space Protection Orders are in place. These give the council more powers to issue on-the spot fines of up to £100.
Fifteen people have been fined under the new orders between April and June - about the same level as previous years, the authority said.
Senior environmental health officer Kevin Brader said people "should do their research".
He added that offenders could end up before magistrates if fines were not paid.
In Antony, the A374 Antony Road is partially blocked near Trevol Road due to an accident.
The Zoo: What makes our animal friends tick? Now they're telling us
A new children's TV programme featuring talking animals has started on CBBC, and it was all filmed at Paignton Zoo.
The Zoo is a cross between a fly-on-the-wall documentary (although we don't think any flies are among the exhibits) and a comedy, where we get to hear what the animals really think of what is going on around them.
Filmed over three months, it is narrated by Outnumbered and Mock The Week star Hugh Dennis, and also co-stars the zoo's keepers.
In the first episode, it is the zoo's annual inspection day and evil-genius monkey Brutus hatches a plan.
Action 'may be taken' against unofficial Porthleven harbour double yellow lines
BBC Radio Cornwall
Action may be taken against controversial yellow lines painted on the road along a harbour in Cornwall, it is understood.
The road in Porthleven is owned by the Porthleven Harbour & Dock Company.
Company owner Trevor Osborne said the lines were painted to discourage people from parking next to the town harbour, but no-one would ever be issued with a ticket.
Cornwall Council said the company would have to apply for official permission or face enforcement action.
Co-op worker blinded in one eye in assault
A shop worker has been blinded in one eye in an assault after turning three men out of a shop.
Devon and Cornwall Police said they were hunting three men after the Co-op employee was attacked in the Alphington Road store, Exeter, at about 21:10 on Monday 7 August
He was assaulted after he asked three men who came into the shop to leave. One of the men punched him a "number of times" before running off with the other two towards Waterloo Road, the force added.
Officers said: "As a result of the assault, the store employee has lost the sight in one eye and suffered a number of fractures to his eye socket."
Police have appealed for witnesses and released CCTV pictures of the men they were trying to trace.
Det Con Heidi Voaden said: "The victim has been left with life-changing injuries in what was an unprovoked attack on a member of staff doing his job. I ask anyone with information to please contact us."
Marcus Hutchins: Cyber-security researcher will 'vigorously defend himself'
The Devon cyber-security researcher accused in the US of creating and selling malware is going to "vigorously defend himself" against the charges, one of his lawyers says.
Marcus Hutchins, from Ilfracombe, shot to fame after helping to stall the WannaCry ransomware cyber-attack that struck the NHS and affected many other organisations around the world in May.
But the 23-year-old faces six charges relating to the development and distribution of Kronos, a well-known piece of malware that gathered financial information from infected computers after he was arrested by the FBI on 2 August in Las Vegas.
A trial has been scheduled for October.
Marcia Hoffman, one of his lawyers, said: "Marcus Hutchins is a brilliant young man and a hero.
"He is going to vigorously defend himself against these charges and when the evidence comes to light we are confident that he will be fully vindicated."
A high note: Royal Cornwall Hospital staff form workplace choir
Coastguards have released footage of a "challenging rescue" in Cornwall which saw three people need to be taken from stormy waters in Bude at the weekend.
All three were winched into a rescue helicopter after two of the casualties tried to rescue the third who was on a rock cut off by tides on Sunday night, the Maritime and Coastguard Agency said.
Coastguard Winch Operator Ginge Steablr said it was challenging for "a number of reasons", including "the close proximity of the casualties to the cliff; the weather with an offshore wind blowing directly on to the cliff, large waves, messy surf and peaking high tide".
All three were treated in hospital in Plymouth for mild hypothermia.
"This incident could so easily have turned into a really tragic one", said Coastguard spokesman Alan Pickersgill.
Posting on Twitter as @MalwareTechBlog, Mr Hutchins said: "There's a lot of people I'd like to thank for amazing support over the past 11 days, which I will do when I get a chance to publish my blog."
He added: "I'm still on trial, still not allowed to go home, still on house arrest; but now i am allowed online. Will get my computers back soon."
He also listed a list of "things to do" at Def Con, the hacking conference he attended in Las Vegas prior to his arrest. The list read: "Attend parties; visit red rock canyon; go shooting; be indicted by the FBI; rent supercars."
Mr Hutchins shot to fame after helping to stall the WannaCry ransomware cyber-attack that struck the NHS and affected many other organisations around the world in May.
He denies six charges relating to the development and distribution of Kronos, a well-known piece of malware that gathered financial information from infected computers.
The train partly left the tracks as it was pulling away from a platform at low speed at 05:40 BST, Network Rail said.
South West Trains runs services to Waterloo from Exeter.
British Transport Police said: "Officers [were] called to Waterloo at 6.04am [after a] passenger train derailed at a low speed while leaving the station. It struck a stationary freight train. No injuries. Working with industry partners to investigate."
Network Rail said: "If you don't have to travel to Waterloo today, please don't."
