Metro Bank continues its fast expansion this week with the opening of its 30th store in Basildon. To mark the opening, the UK’s most revolutionary bank will be holding two days of celebrations on Friday 21st and Saturday 22nd November. Basildon residents and businesses visiting the store will experience an array of entertainment; including stilt walkers, face painting, performing dogs, balloons and music, as well as a new, convenient customer focused bank. What’s more, Dogs Rule at Metro Bank, so customers are invited to bring their canine friends along with them.
The new Basildon Metro Bank store can be found at 2/6 East Walk, Eastgate Centre, Basildon, SS14 1HH. Customers will be looked after by a team led by Local Director Liam Hutchings and Store Manager Glen Russell.
Unlike any other bank in the UK, Metro Bank is open seven days a week, early and late. It provides free coin counting for customers and non-customers with Metro Bank Magic Money Machines, instant printing and replacements for lost or stolen debit cards*, as well as safe deposit boxes, a 24 hour contact centre manned by people not machines and an innovative mobile app for personal customers. Metro Bank uses the most advanced technology to support customers through whichever channel they choose to use for their banking. Its innovative approach has resulted in the revolutionary bank being awarded the Technology Innovation Enterprise Award by Microsoft as part of the 2014 Microsoft Dynamics Customer Excellence Awards Programme.
All of these benefits can be enjoyed at a time that is convenient to local residents and businesses as Metro Bank is open 8am – 8pm Monday – Friday, 8am – 6pm Saturday and 11am – 5pm Sunday and bank holidays, 362 days a year.
Kevin Walker, Regional Director of Metro Bank, said: “We are delighted to move into Basildon and become a part of a community that we admire. Thousands of people have joined us for the unparalleled levels of service and convenience that we offer, and we’re excited to be able to bring a choice to the people of Basildon. Metro Bank is a community bank and each of our stores is run by a local bank manager who works closely with the community to really understand their needs. We look forward to our store in Eastgate Shopping Centre becoming a focal-point of the community and making a difference to the way that the town banks.” Metro Bank’s growth is set to continue throughout the rest of 2014 and 2015, with new stores opening shortly in Orpington, Cambridge and Brighton.
