    the meaning of "long since closed"

    Dear all,

    "It was well known that the bank, long since closed, was terribly managed. Its customers, following an old practice..

    In the sentence above, does "long since closed" mean "it has been long since it was closed"?

    A kind of omission?

    Thank you!
