Metro Bank will mark the opening of its new Liverpool Street store with grand opening celebrations on Thursday 16th and Friday 17th November
The new Liverpool Street store – the challenger bank’s 52nd store – is located at 117-121 Bishopsgate, EC2M 7PP and will be open seven days a week.
The store will feature a meeting room space for business customers, while the bank will be hosting a range of networking and community events throughout the year.
The store will be led by store manager Charlotte Turner and local director Adam Johnson.
Iain Kirkpatrick, managing director for retail banking at Metro Bank, said: “Customers are telling us time after time that they want the option to choose how, when and where they bank.
“That’s why we offer customers fantastic service across all our channels and are opening stores in prime locations, which are open when customers need them and provide services that they can’t get anywhere else.
“We very much look forward to welcoming both local businesses and residents to our new City store over the coming weeks and months.”
Alderman Charles Bowman, lord mayor elect of the City of London, added: “I am delighted to be officially opening – during my first week in office – this Metro Bank branch in the heart of the Square Mile – a demonstration of the bank’s growth and ability to meet public need.
“This new branch will be a welcome addition for many, complementing the City’s wealth of services and making London a better place to do business.”
