New Sheffield bank opens after launch was delayed by lockdown
A new bank has opened in Sheffield city centre creating 25 jobs after the launch was delayed by the pandemic.
Metro Bank on Fargate was preparing to open in March just as lockdown was announced.
Now it is open, but with reduced opening hours.
Bosses say it will operate in line with the latest Government guidance and with strict social distancing measures to protect customers and staff.
Employees have been fundraising for charity Brain Tumour Research and Support and this week will complete a 114-mile cycling, walking and running ‘Tour de South Yorkshire’ to raise £1,000.
Ian Walters, managing director, distribution at Metro Bank, says: “We’re sorry the store has opened a little later than first planned, but we’re pleased to be opening the doors safely.
“We are committed to supporting local causes and delivering more than just banking, as seen by the fantastic effort the team has put in to complete its ‘Tour de South Yorkshire’ challenge.”
