The branch is modern and reflects the high standards that our customers expect from BBK and we look forward to making banking a pleasurable experience for all our customers.”
Giving reason to why City Centre was the location of choice, Mr. Bucheery further said, “We have put in all our efforts to ensure that we are constantly going where the customer goes. Our customers are our top priority at BBK. Our aim, always, is to make the process of banking easier for our customers and hence we saw Bahrain City Centre Mall as an optimal location for our branch. The mall is centrally located and that enables people living or working in its vicinity to visit it often, the same comfort will now be available to our customers as well.”
