In their final act of 2016, eurochange - the foreign exchange experts, opened three new branches across Ilford, Canterbury and Stoke, bringing their own festive gifts to the regions by generating fifteen new jobs.
A recent news article in The Sentinel, Stoke-on-Trent’s premier newspaper, stated that “Shoppers have praised the job creation and extra choice available with the opening of the store.”
The paper went on to say “Eurochange – one of Britain's largest foreign exchange providers…provides a comprehensive range of travel currencies to individuals and businesses. It also offers an international payments service, allowing money to be sent overseas via the same banking systems that high street banks use. And customers can order currency online and 'click and collect' in-branch in just 60 seconds.”
Steve Ward, from Cotes Heath, thought the intu Potteries centre was an ideal place for the foreign exchange business.
“… I think it'll be good to have a currency shop. Others nearby have shut down, so I think it's something we need. There are too many clothes shops to be honest. This will make other currency services more competitive and give people more options which can be no bad thing."
Giles Custerson, managing director at eurochange, added: "We're very excited to see a new branch open in Stoke-on-Trent
and are looking forward to providing an expert foreign exchange service to both locals and visitors to the area."
