Metro Bank continues its fast paced expansion in 2014 with the opening of its 28th store in Wood Green, North London. To mark the opening, the UK’s most revolutionary bank will be holding two days of celebrations on Friday 24th and Saturday 25th October. Wood Green 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 Wood Green Metro Bank store can be found in 136 High Road, Wood Green, N22 6EB. Customers will be looked after by a team led by Local Director Denis Knockton and Store Manager Mohamed Contractor.

Metro Bank launched in July 2010 and provides unparalleled levels of service and convenience to customers, through every banking channel. 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*, a 24 hour local contact centre manned by people not machines, and an innovative mobile app for personal customers. What’s more, Dogs Rule at Metro Bank, so customers in Wood Green 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.

Customers wishing to reserve a Safe Deposit Box at the Wood Green store, can do so online the week before the opening.

Brian Woolrich, Regional Director of Metro Bank said: “We are delighted to move into Wood Green and become part of a community that we admire. Our continued success and growth demonstrates just how much people value amazing customer service in banking. Metro Bank is a community bank with each of our stores run by a local bank manager who works closely with local people and businesses to really understand their needs. We look forward to welcoming personal and business customers in Wood Green as we continue to revolutionise banking.”

Metro Bank’s growth is set to continue throughout the rest of 2014, with new stores opening shortly in St Albans, Basildon and Orpington.
