Greggs announces latest reopening plans with fans

As non-essential shops in England begin to reopen, many people are wondering when their favourite bakery will start operating again.

So when does Greggs reopen and which stores across the UK will once again offer delicious treats like the Steak Bake, Vegan Sausage Roll and Bacon and Cheese Wrap?

While many shops are reopening today [June, 15], Greggs is planning its comeback for Wednesday, June 18.

The bakery plans to reopen 800 shops, which will initially include approximately 150 franchise shops.

Greggs hasn’t revealed which bakeries will reopen yet but is “currently in the process of selecting around 800 shops to reopen.”

The bakery hopes to open all bakeries by July 1, 2020.

Greggs CEO Roger Whiteside said: “We’ve recently opened a selection of shops on an ad-hoc basis in the North East trialling delivery, collection and standard walk-in orders.

“This was so we could test out new operational safety measures to roll out on a wider scale when the time is right.

“The trials have been performing well, providing useful feedback from colleagues and customers, and we’ll continue to adapt as we learn more and work to the latest Government advice.”

Adding: “We plan to start preparing and opening more shops nationwide from around the 18th of June and we’re currently in the process of selecting around 800 shops to reopen, this will initially include approximately 150 franchise shops.

“ll shops will open with our new tested operational measures in place. And although they will open with a reduced range, this will be a significant step in us helping the nation get back up and running and serving the communities that we operate in.

“We’ll continue to look for the best ways to serve customers whilst keeping everyone safe, and as long as we can continue to do this, the final phase in our plan is to open all shops with our new operational measures in place by July 1st.”

He concluded: “A huge thanks to our colleagues and customers for their cooperation and understanding throughout this process. Keep safe, and all the best.”
