  • New community-focused bank opens in Basingstoke
  • Metro Bank’s Grand Opening celebrations to take place on Friday 30 and Saturday 31 December

Metro Bank is set to bring the banking revolution to Basingstoke, with the opening of its 48th store on Friday 30 December. The award-winning bank prides itself on its high street presence, with each of its stores firmly rooted in the local community that it serves.

In the spirit of community, Metro Bank is inviting Basingstoke residents to join colleagues for its grand opening celebrations. The two-day long party will include live music, stilt walkers, giveaways, and entertainment for the whole family.

The bank plays an active role in local communities, with each and every Metro Bank store proudly hosting a range of initiatives throughout the year to support residents and businesses, from SME networking events to its free financial education programme for schoolchildren.

James Baughan, Regional Director, Metro Bank commented: “By opening our brand-new store in the heart of the Basingstoke community, we’re really ending the year on a high! Our stores play a fundamental role in enabling us to not only provide customers with a truly amazing banking experience, but also allow us to host a range of events for local residents and businesses. We look forward to becoming an important part of the local community and making a real difference to the way the town banks.”

Unlike any other bank in the UK, Metro Bank is open seven days a week, early until late, and provides instant account opening, along with on-the-spot card printing for lost or stolen credit or debit cards. All stores offer safe deposit boxes for customers’ valuables and free coin counting for customers and non-customers alike.

The new Basingstoke team will be led by Store Manager, Chloe White and Local Director, Leigh Atkinson. The store can be found at: Unit 1, Chiswick House, Festival Place, Basingstoke, RG21 7LD.

All Metro Bank stores are open at the most convenient time for local residents and businesses 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.
