Banking Revolution Sets its sights on Bristol

29th April 2018
  • Customer-focused, seven-day-a-week bank to open in city centre
  • Creates 25 new jobs for community
  • Bank to welcome children, pets and bicycles in store

Metro Bank, the revolution in British banking, is set to open a new store in central Bristol this autumn, creating around 25 new jobs for local people. The seven-day-a-week store will combine face-to-face relationship banking with state-of-the-art technology, providing residents and businesses with a customer-focused and convenient banking experience. 

The city centre store will offer business, personal and private banking services for the whole community, from early in the morning until late at night, seven-days-a-week. Customers will be able to pop in-store without an appointment and in most cases, open a personal or business account on-the-spot, leaving with a printed debit card, along with internet and mobile banking all set-up.

Business customers will have at hand a friendly Local Business Manager to support them as they grow and develop, as well as free access to the Forum of Private Business’ wealth of bespoke resources. What’s more, the store will have over 4,000 safe deposit boxes for customers to store their valuables, as well as free coin counting facilities for children and adults alike.

Jo Hawkins, Broadmead Bristol BID Manager commented: “We are delighted that Metro Bank has chosen to invest in Broadmead and we eagerly await the opening of this exciting new bank. We wish the team every success and look forward to working with them.”

Craig Donaldson, CEO at Metro Bank said: “Joining the Bristol community is a real milestone for us and we’re delighted to be opening in such a fast-growing and dynamic city. We can’t wait to bring the banking revolution to the residents and businesses of Bristol so whether you’re looking for a banking partner to help your business take its next step, or simply want somewhere where you feel welcome early until late, we will soon be in Bristol to show what great service and convenience is all about.”

Metro Bank has secured a prominent location at 40-46 Broadmead, BS1 3HB for its revolutionary store – which will have baby changing facilities and gender-neutral toilets for customers and non-customers. Residents and businesses are also encouraged to attend the store’s fun and interactive networking, charity, and family events which will be held all year round.

All stores are open at the most convenient time for local people from 8am to 8pm Monday to Fridays, 8am to 6pm on Saturday and 11am to 5pm on Sundays and bank holidays, 362 days a year.
