Following the success of our standalone Kiwibank branches in Hamilton and Auckland CBD, Kiwibank has brought this model to Christchurch CBD. Doors open 9am Tuesday morning at the new branch at 668 Colombo Street.

General Manager Retail Distribution Geoff Waller says “Kiwibank is proud to be part of the Christchurch business community and it’s important to us to play our part in the CBD revival. We also know our customer needs are changing, and we want to have the right environment for conversations and to keep providing our unique customer experience. We’re really pleased the third of our new model branches, and first in the South Island, is in Christchurch CBD.”

“While the container mall branch has meant we’ve been able to look after our customers in this area over the previous years, we’ve always been looking forward to a more established and extensive branch, and we’re looking forward to introducing our Christchurch customers to the Kiwibank standalone model and specialised banking services we offer there.”

Kiwibank will also be housing business banking and some corporate functions on the floors above the branch when completed, expected to be in late January.
