A new seven-day-a-week bank is set to open in Enfield.

Metro Bank will be launching its 67th store on Church Street and there will be a two-day long launch party on June 21 and 22.

Customers will be able to visit at a time convenient to them without an appointment and business owners will be supported by the store-based business managers. Additionally, 1,600 safety deposit boxes will be available for residents to reserve.

The bank will be open from 8am to 8pm Monday to Friday, 8am to 6pm on Saturday and 11am to 5pm on Sunday and bank holidays.

Dogs are welcome in the store, and there is a selection of goodies including fresh water bowls and treats on offer.

The bank said the new premises will create around 25 jobs.

Enfield Council leader, Cllr Nesil Caliskan said: “Enfield’s residents want a well-connected and vibrant town centre, which has all the facilities they need while retaining its traditional high street feel, so it’s great to see another new business investing in Enfield Town.

"Enfield Council will be working closely with local communities and traders over the next few months to plan for future growth in the borough and make sure our town centres remain attractive, successful and thriving.”

Craig Donaldson, CEO at Metro Bank added: “We’re thrilled to be bringing the very best in customer service and convenience to local residents and businesses in Enfield as we open our 67th store. Our continued expansion across Britain is empowering communities and businesses, and providing them real choice in who they bank with.

“Our Enfield store will also give local people and businesses more than just a place to do their banking, it will be a hub to support them, whether it’s through a networking or charity event, or simply being able to speak to someone face-to-face seven days a week, 362 days a year.”

The grand opening event will begin at 8am on June 21. There will be stilt walkers, a DJ, free manicures and face painting.

Enfield Mayor, Cllr Kate Anolue will officially open the store, along with the store’s hosts, Local Director, Guy Jones-Owen and Store Manager, Abdul Khamil.

The new store will also be hosting its first Money Zone event, Metro Bank’s financial education programme for primary school children, at the launch – with a group of local children from Freezywater St. George's Primary School coming in to learn how money, banking and personal finance works.
