Metro Bank has announced that it plans to open a new store in central Bristol this autumn .
The challenger bank's Bristol store will offer business, personal and private banking services from early in the morning until late at night, seven days a week.
Business customers will have a local business manager to support them as they grow, as well as free access to the Forum of Private Business's bespoke resources.
The new store will also create around 25 new jobs for local people.
“Joining the Bristol community is a real milestone for us and we're delighted to be opening in such a fast-growing and dynamic city,” said Craig Donaldson, CEO at Metro Bank.
“We can't wait to bring the banking revolution to the residents and businesses of Bristol, so whether you're looking for a banking partner to help your business take its next step, or simply want somewhere where you feel welcome early until late, we will soon be in Bristol to show what great service and convenience is all about.”
Metro has been able to secure a central location for its new store at 40-46 Broadmead, which will host interactive networking, charity and family events all year round.
Jo Hawkins, Broadmead Bristol BID manager, added: “We are delighted that Metro Bank has chosen to invest in Broadmead and we eagerly await the opening of this exciting new bank.
“We wish the team every success and look forward to working with them.”
