Metro Bank continues its fast paced expansion in 2014 with the opening of its 26th store in Epsom, Surrey. To mark the opening, the UK’s most revolutionary bank will be holding two days of celebrations on Friday 14th and Saturday 15th March. Epsom residents and businesses visiting the store will experience an array of entertainment; including stilt walkers, face painting, balloons and music, and most importantly, a new convenient customer focused bank for personal and business customers.

The new Epsom Metro Bank store can be found in 91A High Street, Epsom, Surrey KT19 8DR. Customers will be looked after by a team led by Local Director Hilary Carruthers and Store Manager Yas Hussain.

Metro Bank launched in July 2010 with a focus on providing unparalleled levels of service and convenience to customers. It has brought back traditional retail banking, coupled with amazing technology. Unlike any other bank in the UK, Metro Bank also provides free coin counting for customers and non-customers with Metro Bank Magic Money Machines, instant printing and replacements for lost or stolen debit cards*, and a 24 hour contact centre manned by people not machines. What’s more, Dogs Rule at Metro Bank, so customers in Epsom are invited to bring their canine friends along with them to receive their own treats.

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, 362 days a year.
