Cambridge residents visiting the store will have the chance to enjoy an array of grand opening festivities; including stilt walkers, face painting, performing dogs, live music, and most importantly, a new convenient, customer-focused bank that provides unparalleled levels of service and convenience. At Metro Bank, Dogs Rule, so customers are invited to bring their canine companions along with them.
Metro Bank is committed to providing customers with amazing service and convenience through every banking channel. Unlike any other bank in the UK, all stores provide instant printing and replacements for lost or stolen debit cards, free coin counting for customers and non-customers alike with Metro Bank Magic Money Machines and, Safe Deposit Boxes for customers’ valuables.
