24th October 2011
  • The banking revolution continues as Metro Bank opens 9th store in Uxbridge on 28th and 29th October
  • The store will open twice the hours of traditional banks, seven days a week, 361 days a year

Metro Bank is taking the banking revolution to the bustling streets of Uxbridge, with the launch of its ninth store on the 28th and 29th of October.

Local residents will enjoy stilt walkers, face painters, performing dogs and entertainment throughout the day to celebrate the arrival of Uxbridge’s newest bank.

Metro Bank is unlike any other bank in the UK with all dogs welcome in stores, free coin counting with its Magic Money Machines, instant issue debit cards and cheque books and being open 361 days a year. It has already seen over 37,000 individuals and businesses open accounts since the launch of the bank in July 2010 as customers flock to experience the exceptional levels of customer service.

The Uxbridge launch will be the ninth store for Metro Bank and follows a hugely successful store in Croydon where since opening its doors on June 17th, over 3,500 Croydon residents and businesses have opened Metro Bank accounts

Craig Donaldson, Chief Executive Officer at Metro Bank, said: “We’re offering Uxbridge a bank like no other in the area, Metro Bank continues to deliver high levels of service and convenience to all its customers. This launch means the town of Uxbridge now has a bank that is open seven days a week and at times that suit local people and businesses. The store is open 8am – 8pm Monday – Friday, 8am – 6pm Saturday and 11am – 5pm Sunday and bank holidays. With more launches scheduled for this year, customers can look forward to a better banking experience.”

Andrew Haughey, Retail Asset Manager at Capital & Regional, comments on the launch: “Metro Bank is an exciting addition to The Mall Uxbridge, and will further strengthen our offer within the centre, particularly benefiting our regular shoppers. Metro Bank shares the Mall’s customer-focused values and is known as a dynamic, forward thinking brand. We’re pleased to be welcoming its ninth UK store to Uxbridge.”

The Uxbridge store opening is the next step in Metro Bank’s accelerated expansion plans to open over 200+ stores over the next 10 years. Metro Bank is still the only high street bank to be granted a full service banking license by the FSA in the last 18 months
