AIB is to pilot an in-store banking outlet at a Dublin supermarket.
The trial will see extended extended bank opening hours, a staffed advisory and sales service, and facilities such as ATMs, cash and cheque lodgement machines.
It will be available in SuperValu Lucan from July.
AIB and SuperValu said the aim of the initiative is to establish how an in-store banking outlet can benefit their respective customers.
AIB managing director of retail, corporate and business banking Robert Mulhall said: “Our research has shown that partnerships between leading supermarkets and banks can be very successful.
“This concept is well proven over the past 20 years in the US, UK and Australia.
“This initiative complements our existing branch network which we have been expanding since 2015 and we are delighted to partner with leading Irish-owned grocery retailer SuperValu on this pilot.”
Martin Kelleher, managing director of SuperValu, added: “We look forward to exploring this trial with AIB in our Lucan store which allows us to tailor our offer to suit the local communities we serve.”
