A building society branch in Congleton has reopened with a new look.
Leek Building Society reopened their Congleton branch on the High Street following a significant renovation project, the eighth of the Society's 12 branches to be transformed following a rebranding programme..
Since it closed on 17 March, the branch has undergone a complete makeover and it offer a range of new and improved features for members.
The new community wall offers local community groups and charitable organisations in the wider Congleton area, a place to promote their upcoming events and activities, and members can now browse the leekbs.co.uk website using the new iPad area.
Thanks to the addition of an engagement zone, customers can now comfortably sit away from the counter and speak to a member of the team about any queries they have. The branch entrance remains equipped with an automatic door to maintain maximum accessibility for members.
Congleton branch manager Richard Czapski, said: "Following the refurbishment, the team and I are delighted with the new look of the branch. We're confident that our members will agree and make use of the new engagement zone we've set up to enhance the support and customer service that we provide."
Richard and his team were proud to have the support of Congleton Town Mayor, Cllr Margaret Gartside, who came to visit the newly transformed space to officially reopen the branch with a ceremonial ribbon cut.
The Congleton branch now has extended opening hours of 9am - 2pm, Monday to Friday and 9:15am – 12 noon on Saturdays, giving members more flexibility on when they can visit.
Leek Building Society will continue their refurbishment programme, with their Macclesfield branch next in line.
