Newcastle Building Society to open latest branch in Stokesley improving services
Newcastle Building Society is to open a new and improved branch in Stokesley.
The region’s biggest building society is creating an open-plan branch at 36 High Street, which is part of an ongoing multi-million-pound investment programme across the branch network.
Work is now underway at the new branch, with local firm Prodrive Shopfitting being appointed as main contractor for the project, and it is due to open its doors to customers at the end of this month.
The Society’s existing branch at 19 High Street will remain open as usual until the new branch is ready, and the branch team will move across to their new home over the weekend before it opens to ensure customers retain access to a local branch at all times.
Stuart Miller, customer director of Newcastle Building Society, said: “At a time when many financial institutions are closing branches across the region, we are reaffirming our commitment to maintaining our high street presence across the region.
“We’ve chosen a vibrant, busy location for our new Stokesley branch that is easily accessible to customers and are looking forward to providing local customers with improved access to services in a high quality environment.”
The Society is more than halfway through a branch improvement programme which will see work on new or improved facilities in every part of its branch network. It is due to be completed at the end of 2019.
“We strongly believe our future lies in our local communities, and see making local investments as a crucial part of building a sustainable future for both them and ourselves.
“Prodrive came highly recommended, and being able to call on the services of this sort of excellent local firm provides another way in which we deliver direct benefits to our communities.”
