SCOTTISH Building Society has underlined its commitment to the country’s high streets, as it opens the doors of its new-look Troon Relationship Centre on Ayr Street, representing a five-figure investment to the local area.
Derek Johnston, Chief Risk Officer at Scottish Building Society, alongside members of the senior management team joined staff and local members to celebrate the refurbishment which has transformed the branch into a more welcoming and relaxed space.
The new Relationship Centre features break out spaces with comfortable seating, as well as private meeting rooms where members can engage with staff to make important financial decisions.
Scottish Building Society has been a fixture in Troon for more than 20 years with hundreds of local members visiting every week.
As many high street banks reduce their physical locations, Scottish Building Society is bucking the trend and instead invested into refurbishing its branches across the country, including Aberdeen and Inverness.
Derek Johnston, Chief Risk Officer at Scottish Building Society, said: “As the world’s oldest remaining building society with roots dating back to 1848, we are incredibly proud of our heritage and have remained true to our purpose since then. However, it is important that we continue to evolve as consumer habits and lifestyles change.”
“We are aware that digital innovation has transformed how many of us bank, but we also know that our members still want to visit a physical branch and chat with somebody face-to-face. That’s why we have made such a significant investment into future-proofing our Relationship Centres and ensuring that our customers have an inviting place to visit to discuss important financial decisions.”
“It was great to meet with our Troon team and members and share what the future holds for Scottish Building Society, as we continue to provide a range of fantastic savings and mortgages to the people of Scotland and beyond.”
