Metro Bank is coming to Canterbury

2nd August 2017
  • Customer-focussed, seven-day-a-week bank to open in Canterbury
  • New store will create 25 jobs for local community

Metro Bank is set to bring the banking revolution to the people of Canterbury later this year. The award winning bank prides itself on providing customers with an amazing banking experience and is renowned for its superior levels of service and convenience.

Canterbury residents will benefit from the new store being open seven days a week, early until late, 362 days a year. Unlike any other bank, Metro Bank provides instant account opening, along with on-the-spot card printing for lost or stolen bank cards. What’s more, the store will also have over 2,300 safe deposit boxes for customers to store their valuables and free coin counting facilities for customers and non-customers alike.

Not only does the bank invest in its high street presence, but it also offers customers the ability to bank online, via its mobile app and through its contact centres, which are manned by people rather than machines.

Iain Kirkpatrick, Managing Director of Retail Banking at Metro Bank commented: “We’re delighted to be opening a store in the historic city of Canterbury. Making banking simple and convenient is a real priority for us and we’re thrilled to bring residents a bank that puts customers at the heart of everything it does.

“Our stores provide something new and different to the local community and it’s essential that we continue to provide the services that customers want and need. This means creating around 25 new careers, taking part in local activities and hosting free networking events for the whole community. Canterbury is an extraordinary city that we’re excited to be a part of and we’ll be celebrating our new store with two days of grand opening festivities later this year. We look forward to meeting local residents and businesses, and introducing them to the banking revolution.”

Metro Bank sources the very best locations for its stores and is proud to make an investment in Canterbury’s city centre and has secured a prominent location at: 2 George Street, Canterbury, CT1 2SR.

All stores are open at the most convenient time for local residents and businesses from 8am to 8pm Monday to Fridays, 8am to 6pm on Saturday and 11am to 5pm on Sundays and bank holidays, 362 days a year.
