Emma Reynolds, Member of Parliament for Wolverhampton North East has welcomed the reopening of the Barclays branch in Wolverhampton city centre following a major refurbishment programme. The Barclays branch in Queen Square has received the bank’s new assisted service counter model – a design that Barclays is introducing in some of its’ branch across the country. This investment has resulted in a number of changes to the bank’s traditional banking hall with a number of improvements including open counters, private offices and a comfortable waiting area.

Attending the official opening today was local MP Emma Reynolds who commented: “I am delighted that Barclays have chosen Wolverhampton to be one of their first branches to be refurbished with the new layout. The new design is attractive and modern, and I am sure customers will now have a far more convenient banking experience here. Rajinder has done an excellent job transforming this branch and making it a real asset to Wolverhampton city centre.”

Rajinder Dhaliwal, Community Leader at Barclays in the Black Country said: “We are delighted that Queen Square branch is one of the early branches to receive the new design which will allow customers to make routine transactions quickly and effectively freeing up our staff to spend more time with customers to help them with their more complex banking requirements. The refurbishment provides a great environment for our customers and staff alike. We have already received positive feedback from our customers on the new layout.” “We want to offer all our customers more choice and control when it comes to banking. Our new look branch has facilities that have been specifically developed to provide more choice and privacy.”
