Metro Bank’s rapid expansion continues in 2015 with the opening of its 40th store in Maidstone. To mark the occasion, the UK’s most revolutionary bank is inviting Maidstone residents to join colleagues for its grand opening celebrations taking place on Friday 11th and Saturday 12th December.
As a community bank, Metro Bank is passionate about creating local jobs and has employed around 20 people from Maidstone. The team will be led by Debbie Valk, Store Manager and Duncan Simmons, Local Director. The new Metro Bank store can be found at 10 Week Street, Maidstone, ME14 1RN.
Metro Bank launched in July 2010 with a focus on providing unparalleled levels of service and convenience to customers – testament in its early until late, seven day store opening. Unlike any other bank in the UK, Metro Bank 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 and safe deposit boxes for customers’ valuables.
The bank is supported by the most advanced technology to give customers an excellent service across any channel they choose to use for their banking, be it in store, via the 24 hour local contact center manned by people not machines, online banking or through the personal innovative mobile app.
All Metro Bank stores are open at the most convenient time for local residents and businesses; 8am – 8pm Monday – Friday, 8am – 6pm Saturday and 11am – 5pm Sundays and bank holidays, 362 days a year.
