Metro Bank is set to open two stores on 20th and 21st September in Solihull and Merry Hill.
The new openings — which will be the challenger bank’s 69th and 70th stores — will both have a two-day opening party.
Metro’s new Merry Hill shopping centre store will be the first Metro Bank to open in the Black Country and provide the region with its first drive-thru banking experience.
The Solihull, West Midlands, store will be located at 119 High Street in the heart of the town centre.
The stores combined will provide over 5,000 safe deposit boxes and create 50 new jobs in the regions.
“Metro Bank’s further expansion into the West Midlands and the Black Country is supporting communities and businesses, and providing them with real choice in who they bank with,” said Ian Walters, managing director of retail and business banking at Metro Bank.
