The challenger bank is continuing to invest in the south coast with the opening of a new branch in Southyampton this year, creating 25 jobs.
Located in the West Quay Shopping Centre, the seven-day-a-week store will combine face-to-face relationship banking, with state-of-the-art technology, providing customers with a customer-focused and convenient banking experience.
Customers will be able to pop in without an appointment and in most cases, open a personal account in a matter of minutes, leaving with a printed debit card, along with internet and mobile banking all set-up.
Business customers too will be able to open an account on-the-spot, as well as benefit from free meeting room use and their own personal local business manager to support them as they grow and develop.
In addition, through a recent partnership with the Forum of Private Business, customers will now be able to benefit from free access to the forum’s wealth of bespoke resources.
Craig Donaldson, CEO at Metro Bank said: “We’re delighted to be joining such a forward-thinking and innovative city as Southampton, which is already home to some of the UK’s most well-known brands.
"Our new city centre store will be more than a place for people to manage their finances, it will also be a real community hub, hosting a range of networking, charity, and family events throughout the year. We can’t wait to welcome Southampton to the banking revolution.”
The new store will be located at Unit 1 & 2, West Quay Shopping Centre, Above Bar, Southampton SO15 1QD, where it will have over 3,000 safe deposit boxes for customers to store their valuables and free coin counting facilities.
