Northampton opens its doors to local businesses

Metro Bank’s store in Northampton recently held a networking event for local businesses in the area.

The store opened its doors on 13th June to more than 50 representatives from several businesses and professionals in the area.

Metro Bank hosted the event to enable local business people to meet and develop relationships in the Northampton community. Attendees were joined by Craig Donaldson, CEO at Metro Bank, who gave a short presentation before catching up with many of the guests.

Since opening in November 2018 the Metro Bank store has hosted a breakfast networking event once every month.

Kerry Reynolds, Area Director at Metro Bank said: “At Metro Bank we want our stores to give local people and businesses more than just a place to do their banking. We want to act as a hub for the local community – whether that’s through a networking event like this one or simply being able to speak to someone face-to- face seven days a week. We’re really proud to play our part in supporting the local community in Northampton – thank you to everyone who joined us.”

Metro Bank, the revolution in British banking, prides itself on helping the local communities it serves and last year supported over 3,500 community and in-store events, such as business networking sessions, local fairs, charity events, and the bank’s free financial education programme for children, Money Zone.

The bank is the first new high street bank to launch in the UK in over 100 years and is built on the simple maxim that customers deserve the best in service and convenience, bringing a personal and customer focused approach back to banking.

The bank’s stores are open seven days a week, early till late and have a Local Business Manager in every store.

Metro Bank achieved the top spot in the Competition and Markets Authority (‘CMA’) latest Service Quality Survey for overall service among personal current account customers. The bank also came second among business current account customers for overall service quality and was ranked in the top five for all qualifying business and personal services.
