Five new jobs have been created at Victoria Shopping Centre in Harrogate with the arrival of one of Britain’s largest foreign exchange firms.
Eurochange has opened its 101st branch, a new bureau de change, at Unit 22, opposite Poundworld, because the shopping centre “remains the traditional hub of retail”, according to its director of Business & Product Development, Roy McConnell.
“This, coupled with its close proximity to the railway station and other transport links, means that we are conveniently placed for all of our customers,” he said.
“Harrogate offers a diverse mix of residents and visitors that form the ideal customer base for Eurochange. Its close proximity to our existing branches in Leeds and the rest of Yorkshire – as well as our desire to link up with our network in the North East – placed it well up our requirement list.”
Eurochange was established in 1975 by former chairman and owner, Massimo Gini, and was acquired in 2014 by Notemachine UK Limited, a major UK ATM provider.
Eurochange now handles over two million customer transactions each year.
