Metro Bank opens its Hammersmith store on Friday 14 February 2020 in the Kings Mall.
To mark the occasion, Metro Bank invited businesses, residents, families and dogs to the grand opening party to celebrate the new store.
Metro Bank say their stores act a hub for the local community. The Hammersmith store once opened will host regular networking events for local businesses and the Metro team will deliver its free financial education programme, Money Zone, to schools and youth groups in the area. The National Curriculum approved training, which is provided through classroom and store-based sessions, has already supported more than 100,000 children across the UK with their financial literacy. The Hammersmith store hosted its first Money Zone on the morning of the opening, welcoming a group of pupils from Flora Gardens Primary School in to learn some money top tips, play games and meet the bank’s mascot, Metro Man.
Customers can visit the store seven days a week, with no appointment needed, and open a personal or business account on-the-spot, leaving with their debit card in hand, along with internet and mobile banking set-up.
The store has more than 2,500 safe deposit boxes available, which are already available to be reserved, and will offer free coin counting facilities for customers and non-customers alike.
The Hammersmith team have been working closely with the Hammersmith BID in the lead up to the opening and last year attended its local Christmas market for charity, where Metro Bank put on a craft event for children.
Ian Walters, Managing Director of Retail and Business Banking at Metro Bank, said: “We’re thrilled to be opening a new store in Hammersmith, and to be providing the very best service and convenience to our growing network of personal and business customers in the West London region. This store will give the people of Hammersmith a place not only to do their banking, but to connect with their local community and feel valued as customers.”
