Metro Bank, the revolution in British banking, is set to open the region's first drive-thru bank at intu Merry Hill on Friday 20 September 2019.
The store, which will create 25 jobs, will be the first Metro Bank to open in the Black Country.
Customers will be able to visit the stores 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 will combine face-to-face banking with state-of-the-art technology, providing residents and businesses with a customer-focused and convenient banking experience.
The bank will also have around 4,000 safety deposit boxes - which customers can reserve a month before the store opens.
Local companies will benefit from a Local Business Manager ready to help them run and grow their businesses, as well as having free access to the Forum of Private Business’ wealth of bespoke resources and free use of the stores’ meeting spaces.
Local residents and businesses are also encouraged to attend the stores’ free events that are hosted throughout the year, from networking sessions, to charity fundraisers and family craft events.
Andy Street, the Mayor of the West Midlands, has welcomed the West Midlands expansion of the challenger bank.
The former John Lewis MD said: “We are always thrilled to welcome innovative businesses to the West Midlands, and Metro Bank sits firmly in that category. Whether it is banking services for local businesses or personal products for retail customers, the new Metro Bank stores certainly add to the broad range of professional services on offer across the region."
Ian Walters, Managing Director of Retail and Business Banking at Metro Bank added: “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."
