  • Hounslow customers prepare to be amazed by Metro Bank’s 10th Store
  • Metro Bank won’t charge any customers to use debit cards overseas at ATM’s OR point of sale
  • Open seven days a week – banking when the customer wants to bank

This week Metro Bank will hit double figures with its 10th store in Hounslow bringing seven day banking to thousands of new customers in West London. Everyone opening a new account will enjoy being able to use their debit and credit cards overseas without any charge from Metro Bank, whether they are withdrawing cash from an ATM or at point of sale*.

Hounslow will have 2 days of opening celebrations where everyone can enjoy stilt walkers and popcorn, balloons and performing dogs as well as a new, convenient and customer focused store to do their banking.

The Hounslow store is a fantastic place to celebrate the continued expansion of Metro Bank across London, and further demonstrates the bank’s ambition to be the local bank on every high street. In store customers can use the free coin counting Magic Money Machines, there are instant issue debit cards** and cheque books** as well as safety deposit boxes. These benefits can all be enjoyed at a time that is convenient to them as Metro Bank is open 8am – 8pm Monday – Friday, 8am – 6pm Saturday and 11am – 5pm Sunday and bank holidays, 361 days a year!

Metro Bank has already seen over 40,000 individuals and businesses open accounts since the launch of the bank in July 2010. Hounslow is the next step towards the Metro Bank expansion plan to open over 200+ stores over the next 10 years, with High
Wycombe, Watford, Ealing, Chiswick, Reading, Staines, Epsom and Hemel Hempstead set to open in 2012.

Craig Donaldson, Chief Executive Officer at Metro Bank, said: “We are delighted to be hitting double figures with our store in Hounslow and want individuals and businesses to come and help us celebrate. We will bring them a completely new, convenient and customer focused way of banking and we can’t wait to welcome them into our new store.“
