6th February 2013

Grand opening to take place on Friday 8th and Saturday 9th February, at new store based in the heart of Sutton

  • Store open seven days a week from 8am – 8pm, banking when the customer wants to bank
  • No stupid bank rules: Metro Bank won’t charge any customers to use debit cards overseas at ATMs or point of sale

Metro Bank continues its expansion this week with the opening of its 16th store in Sutton, South London. To mark the opening, the UK’s most revolutionary bank will be holding two days of celebrations on Friday 8th and Saturday 9th of February. Sutton residents visiting the store will experience entertainment including free food, stilt walkers, popcorn, performing dogs, balloons and music, as well as a new, convenient customer focused bank.

Over 140,000 customers and businesses have flocked to experience Metro Bank’s amazing service since its launch in 2010, and the Sutton opening is the latest step in Metro Bank’s expansion plan to open 200 stores by 2020. Further stores in Slough, Guildford and Ealing are planned for 2013.

Metro Bank is fulfilling its promise to become the local bank on every high street in the South East of England. Unlike any other bank in the UK, every Metro Bank store provides free coin counting with Metro Bank Magic Money Machines, replacement lost or stolen debit cards on the spot*, as well as safe deposit boxes. New account holders will be delighted to know they can 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**.

All of these benefits can be enjoyed at a time that is convenient to local residents and businesses as Metro Bank is open 8am – 8pm Monday – Friday, 8am – 6pm Saturday and 11am – 5pm Sunday and bank holidays, 361 days a year.

Craig Donaldson, Chief Executive Officer at Metro Bank, said: “Metro Bank’s continued success and growth is a triumph for customer service. We know what customers want, and already we’ve seen large numbers of people flock to us for the unparalleled service and convenience we offer. Now the people of Sutton have a bank that’s open seven days a week and at times that suit them. At a time when other banks are closing their doors, we’re so pleased to have opened our 16th store in Sutton.

“Metro Bank isn’t just for personal customers, so we’d also like to invite all of Sutton’s businesses to come and help us celebrate. Metro Bank continues to bring a completely new, convenient and customer focused way of banking, and we look forward to our Sutton store becoming a centre-point of the community and making a difference to the way that the town banks”.

The new Sutton Metro Bank store can be found at 83/87 High Street, Sutton, SM1 1JF. Metro Bank is planning to grow up to 28 stores across London and the Home Counties this year and is still the only high street bank to be granted a full service banking license by the FSA in the last 100 years.
