“I am already seeing increased footfall as the branches look better and people are now more aware of our products and services.”

East Ham MP Stephen Timms cut the ribbon at the Barking Road and High Street North stores on Friday, December 13.

He added: “The longer hours make it easier to serve customers at Christmas and throughout the year.”
