The new branch occupies one of two retail premises on the ground floor of the recently restored Alban House in High Town, the main shopping thoroughfare in Hereford city centre.
Shaun Middleton, Head of Distribution at Principality Building Society said. “We’re pleased to announce our Hereford branch has moved to the central location of 18 High Town. The relocation has allowed us to offer increased space and services to support our members in Hereford and the surrounding area, including a mortgage advisor. We look forward to welcoming members in a safe way and continuing to support the local community in the coming year.’’
Huw Thomas, Director with Cooke & Arkwright added, “This 100% prime city centre location is three times the size of Principality’s former premises in St Peters Square, a secondary location nearby. The unit in Alban House also benefits from being completely new as the building has been fully redeveloped, retaining its Grade II listed façade, following a fire a few years ago.”
Principality is the UK’s sixth largest building society with over half-a-million members and was founded in Cardiff over 160 years ago.
