A New bank in town - the Co-operative opens an instore bank in Cranbrook
Cranbrook will this week get a new instore bank in town when The Co-operative Bank opens its doors to the public at their new instore bank inside the Co-operative Food store on the High Street.
This new bank will offer a full range of retail and business banking services to Cranbrook’s 6,000 residents. It is one of five instore banks to be opened by The Co-operative this year as part of an eighteen-month pilot. If successful, several hundred instore banks could be rolled out across the UK.
Nathan Griffiths, Branch Manager at The Co-operative Bank in Cranbrook, said: “Our new bank will give us the opportunity to provide a different banking experience for the residents of Cranbrook. Our aim is to provide personal banking in the most convenient way to customers, and by bringing our bank and food store under one roof, we can achieve this.”
“We aspire to be a branch that focuses on doing the right thing, right for our customers and the local community, making sure that we are meeting customers’ needs above everything else. Cranbrook is a small community and we want to be involved in it.”
The Co-operative Group currently operates more than 2,800 food stores and 345 bank branches under The Co-operative Bank and Britannia brands.
