BFC has steadily expanded its network of branches over the last few years and continues to provide customers in Bahrain with a trustworthy and efficient way to send and exchange money. The aptly named “Indian Club Branch”, due to its close proximity to the Manama based Indian Club, will be open from 9am – 10pm, 7 days a week and will celebrate the opening by giving away 100 gold coins to the first 100 lucky customers.
The branch was inaugurated by the Mr. N.K. Chawdhary, First secretary to the Indian ambassador in Bahrain, who commented on the opening “I am happy that BFC has opened its branch next to the Indian club, which will help serve all nationalities within the area. BFC has provided its services to everyone in Bahrain, especially the Indian community for many years which is a testimony of its reliability and trustworthiness. I wish the branch and BFC every success.”
Commenting on the company’s latest venture, BFC General Manager, Mr. Errol Fonseca, said, “After a busy month of preparation, we are proud to announce that we are now open to the public and thank Mr. N.K. Chawdhary for coming today to mark the occasion. The branch looks fantastic and we are looking forward to welcoming customers.”
“The decision to open our 30th outlet here in Al Qudaibiya, Manama, was a strategic one. Whenever we are looking at opening another branch, we look at which locations will most likely benefit our customers. BFC are proud sponsors of many of the expat clubs surrounding the branch and have had a strong relationship with them over the last decade. We are committed to supporting its members and community, so we felt that it was the right time to open a conveniently located branch for them,” he added.
