Metro Bank

Metro Bank is set to open its first East Midlands store in central Northampton this winter, creating around 25 new jobs for local people.

The news comes after the bank opened new stores in Bristol, Bath and Crawley as it ramps up its expansion plans.

The store set for Northampton marks Metro Bank’s most northerly presence in the UK.

Craig Donaldson, CEO at Metro Bank, added: “We’re delighted to be opening a store in Northampton and showing the community what great customer service and convenience looks like.

“From early in the morning until late at night, seven-days-a-week our colleagues will be at hand offering traditional relationship banking, supported by state-of-the-art technology.

“We look forward to welcoming both local residents and businesses to the banking revolution over the coming weeks and months.”

Metro Bank has seen a significant rise over the past few years as detailed in a recent interview BLM conducted with Ian Waters, managing director of Business Banking at Metro Bank.

Rob Purdie, executive director at Northampton BID, commented: “By bringing passion and community-focused service to Northampton’s high street, we hope to revive the face-to-face, personal banking approach amongst residents here, and continue to make Northampton a great place to live and work.”
