The Society opened a Market Drayton branch in 1974 – three doors down from the historic site we now occupy in High Street.
We moved in 1995 to our present premises, which locals may remember was once Cunningham’s fruit and veg store.
It’s a listed building, lying within the market town’s conservation area, and when we refurbished the branch in 2011, we worked closely with Shropshire County Council’s conservation experts to ensure the work was in keeping with the area.
Market Drayton is affectionately known as ‘the home of gingerbread’, and the old town bell still hangs from the nearby ‘Butter Cross’ – a memorial to the baker’s shop fire in 1651 which almost destroyed the town.
Visiting our Market Drayton branch is simple, whether you are coming via public transport, or driving into town, you will find that our branch is convenient.
There is parking close by on Frogmore Road which is about 2 minutes from the branch.
If you are travelling in by bus, there is a stop outside the branch with the local circular 301 bus stop 1 minute walk from our front door.
Dan Nutt, the manager of our Market Drayton branch, joined the Society as a Customer Assistant in Cheadle during 2014 and supported several other branches. He transferred into the Savings Team at our Customer Service Centre in 2017 before being appointed as Branch Manager of Market Drayton in June 2019. Dan and his dedicated team work flexibly to place our members first and are focused on delivering an exceptional service.
Whether you are looking to make the most of your savings or investments, exploring mortgage options for your first or next home, needing friendly help with your household insurance or planning for your retirement, be sure to pop into the branch for a warm welcome.
