The Western Union Company, a leader in global payment services, has announced that its Western Union Money Transfer services have opened within the Alnwick WHSmith store via its self-service kiosks.

The branch, on Bondgate Within, is one of the first locations to launch the self-service kiosks, with Western Union planning to roll out 300 across the UK in the coming months.

The self-service kiosks are easy to use; customers simply need to enter their transaction details at the kiosk and then proceed to a WHSmith self-checkout to pay for their money transfer.

Massimiliano Alvisini, Vice-President Northern Europe at Western Union, said: “I am pleased to announce the launch of one of the first of our self-service kiosks in Alnwick.

“With more than 1,300 stores and an average of almost one million people visiting a WHSmith high-street store every day of the year, WHSmith is a well-established retailer to work with and launch our self-service terminals.”

“We are confident that customers will appreciate the freedom to conduct their transaction at their convenience with efficiency and speed of checkout and that they will benefit highly from this collaboration.”
