The Scottish Building Society has opened the doors to its new ‘relationship centre’ in Inverness on Queensgate.
The financial organization said it represented a significant investment in the region and commitment to the country’s shopping streets.
The Scottish Building Society has been an integral part of Inverness since 1986 and the refurbished branch includes relaxation areas with comfortable seating, as well as private meeting rooms where members can interact with staff to make important financial decisions.
In recent years, the Scottish Building Society has invested over £1 million in new sites and refurbishments at its branches across the country, including in Glasgow, Aberdeen and Troon.
General Manager Paul Denton alongside members of the management team joined staff and local members to celebrate the renovation.
Mr Denton said: “As the world’s oldest remaining construction company with roots dating back to 1848, we are incredibly proud of our heritage and have remained true to our purpose ever since.
“However, it is important that we continue to evolve as consumer habits and lifestyles change.
“We realize that digital innovation has transformed the number of us who do our banking, but we also know that our members still want to walk into a physical branch and chat with someone face-to-face.
“That’s why we’ve made such a significant investment to future-proof our relationship centers and ensure our customers have an inviting place to visit to discuss important financial decisions.
“It was great to meet our team and members in Inverness and share what the future holds for the Scottish Building Society as we continue to offer a fantastic range of savings and mortgages to people in Scotland and beyond.”
