The community welcomed a new addition to the high street at a two-day launch party in Ilford.
Balloons, live music and stilt walkers paraded along the High Road to celebrate Metro Bank opening doors to the public.
Iain Kirkpatrick, managing director of retail banking, said: “The reception we’ve received from the Ilford community over the past few days has been incredible.
“We can’t wait to get to know even more people and become a true community hub.”
Metro Bank is open seven days a week, early until late, and provides instant account opening, along with on-the-spot card printing for lost or stolen credit or debit cards.
All stores offer safe deposit boxes for customers’ valuables and coin counting for customers and non-customers alike, free of charge.
“It was great meeting so many residents and businesses and introducing them to what superior service and convenience looks like,” he added.
