- Customer-focussed bank to open in Luton
- New Metro Bank store will create around 25 jobs in the local community
Metro Bank is set to bring the banking revolution to the people of Luton this summer. The award winning bank prides itself on its high street presence, with each store firmly rooted in the local community it serves.
The bank puts customers’ needs first by providing the best banking experience around. This includes recruiting around 25 locally-based colleagues that have a ‘can do attitude’ and a passion for providing customers with the very best in service and convenience.
Luton 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. All stores offer safe deposit boxes for customers’ valuables and free coin counting for customers and non-customers alike.
Iain Kirkpatrick, Managing Director of Retail Banking at Metro Bank commented: “We are thrilled to be opening a new store in Luton later this year, bringing with us a true banking alternative for the local community. We recognise how important face-to-face relationships are and that’s why we’re open at times convenient for customers – early in the morning to late at night – people are able to fit their banking around their busy schedules.
“Our stores bring something new and different to the local community and it’s essential we provide the services that our customers want and need. This means creating around 25 new career opportunities, taking part in local activities and hosting free networking events for the neighbourhood. Luton is a vibrant community that we’re excited to be a part of and we’ll be celebrating our new store with two days of grand opening celebrations later this year. It’s one not to be missed.”
The bank sources the very best locations for its stores and is proud to make an investment in Luton’s town centre. It has secured a prominent location on 10-20 Castle Street, Luton, LU1 3AJ.
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.
