Virgin Money opened its first banking store in Guildford, England, and it’s very Virgin-esque, with iPads and iMacs, free Wifi, and it’s a place where “customers can simply come in [and] enjoy a cup of tea,” a store manager said in the company’s announcement:

in place to transform the entire network of Northern Rock branches to Virgin Money Stores.”


There’s also no hard sell policy in the new Virgin Money stores.

Virgin Money bought Northern Rock branch earlier this year from the UK Government for £747 million, after the chain was nationalized during the financial crisis.
