The Cheshire is opening a flagship branch in Manchester this week.
The branch contains video conferencing facilities, web access to associated websites, a mobile computer and a self service area for balance enquiries.
Jason Gaunt, marketing director of The Cheshire, says: “Manchester is a fantastic place to live and work. It is attracting more and more people into its centre.
“Manchester is also at the heart of our North West network, so it makes perfect sense for us to have a city branch and bring with us our own brand of mutuality and customer service that is enjoyed by so many around the region.”
