Abstract: The study examined the two dimensions to service quality perception and satisfaction of bank customers’ in retail banking. Random sampling was used for the selection of respondents from three major shopping complexes that had enough concentration of bank customers. A representative sample size of 182 respondents were selected for the study with a response rate of 98.9 percent. The data was analysed by applying the Statistical Package for Social Science (SPSS) software. Findings revealed a significant relationship between “tangibility” and client satisfaction (p-value = 0.008 < 0.05), and at the percent level of significance (/t/ = 3.375, df = 179, p-value = 0.008). The clients’ “reliability” service quality mean expectations score was 3.55, and the service quality perceptions score for reliability was only 3.40. The study concluded that the use of customer satisfaction survey and the offering of genuine services will trigger optimism and prompt loyalty of customers to stay and reduce incidence of switching from one bank to another.
