Greggs will tomorrow open a new shop in MediaCity, Salford, creating 25 new jobs for the area.

Open from 7am with a fresh new look and comfortable seating, the shop will stock freshly prepared Greggs favourites, including its popular sausage rolls, steak bakes and vegan alternatives.

Freshly-made sandwiches, savouries and sweet treats will also be available for those looking to grab a bite on-the-go.

Customers will be able to take advantage of Greggs’ deals throughout the day, including its breakfast combinations offering a breakfast roll or baguette alongside an orange juice or Fairtrade hot drink – served until 11am every day.

Customers will also be able to make click + collect orders via the Greggs app.

And the location also includes a Nuttall Unit so customers can purchase some of Greggs favourite hot items such as southern fried chicken goujons and potato wedges.

Greggs currently has more than 2,200 shops nationwide and approximately 25,000 employees across the business.

“We can’t wait to welcome both Greggs fans and new customers to our brand-new shop,” said shop manager, Vincent Connor.

“We’ve got an amazing range of tasty bakes, hot drinks, sweet treats and savouries available for takeaway or click + collect.”
