MoneyShop opens second store in Hamilton

MoneyShop has launched its second store in Hamilton, offering flight bookings as well as Moneygram services.

The new shop, which will be based in Washington Mall, Church Street, also offers US dollar foreign exchange, cheque cashing, visa and UK and Bermuda passport services.

The flagship store on Dundonald Street, which opened just over a year ago, has already serviced more than 20,000 client transactions.

“We love our North Hamilton shop and have really enjoyed the fun and friendship of the clients that we service there.,“ said Lois Wilson, owner of the MoneyShop. “However we realised that for some clients, there was still a need for a more convenient location.”

MoneyShop’s exclusive relationship with Monegyram International allows the business to send cash instantly worldwide to more than 300,000 locations, including Walmart and CVS in the US and the General Post Office in the UK. In many other countries Moneygram partners with reputable banks.

“Costing only $20 for a transaction of $200 or less, it is a perfect way to get money to a loved one quickly,” Ms Wilson said.

Based on the premise “Simple, Fast and Convenient”, MoneyShop aims to service clients in less than five minutes with fun, friendly service.

As an additional service MoneyShop has teamed up with its sister company Trip to offer simple, fast and convenient travel services.

“I don’t always feel like booking my travel online,” said Ms Wilson, “but at the same time I don’t want to pay ridiculous fees”.

Trip offers the best of both worlds; knowledgeable travel professionals and fun, fast and friendly service without the high fees.

“We are so excited to have Donna DeSilva of SeaPass Cruises also joining us on the Trip team together with Monica Marshall, an experienced travel professional and store manager,” said Ms Wilson.

“Monica is Portuguese-speaking but also an expert in Indian and Philippino travel. We have other great travel professionals waiting to join and are looking forward to bringing the fun back into travel.”
