No.1 Currency, a leading provider of retail foreign exchange in the UK, has today announced the acquisition of six InterCash Bureau de Change outlets.
The acquisition of the InterCash outlets by No.1 Currency, and its experienced bureau employees, will reinforce No.1 Currency’s position as one of the leading foreign exchange providers in the world’s most attractive Retail Foreign Exchange market.
Commenting on today’s announcement, No.1 Currency’s Head of Retail, Simon Phillips, said: "No.1 Currency continues to grow from strength-to-strength and we are delighted to welcome these InterCash outlets into the No.1 Currency fold. InterCash customers can expect the same great rates and excellent customer service with No.1 Currency. Not only do we offer the most competitive foreign exchange rates and charge no commission for transactions, but we have the widest range of currencies available in the market, and we are open in locations convenient for our customers.
"No.1 Currency continues to expand in the UK. In 2014, we will open 20 new retail outlets and create 80 new jobs across the UK, bringing to a total of 43 No.1 Currency outlets and 217 employees.
"We are committed to offering our customers an innovative service which best meets their foreign exchange needs. We recently launched a Click & Collect service, where a customer simply orders their currency online and collects it from their nearest No.1 Currency retail outlet, or at one of our 160 agents across the UK. Click & Collect has been a huge success and we are looking forward to expanding this service into our new retail outlets in the UK this year."
