Greggs postpones store re-opening plans
Greggs has postponed plans to re-open some stores next week due to social distancing concerns.
The retailer had planned a trial run of 20 shop re-openings in the Newcastle area next week, but has now changed its mind after fearing crowds could gather outside its shops.
A Greggs spokesperson said: “Due to significant interest in our 20-shop trial, and the risk that excessive numbers of customers may plan to visit Greggs, we will now initially operate these trials behind closed doors in order to effectively test our new operational safety measures.
“We will continue to review this and will invite walk-in customers into our shops only when we can be confident of doing so in the controlled manner we intended.”
Greggs closed all 2,050 of its stores in line with government covid-19 restrictions on 24 March.
