Greggs has now reopened hundreds more of its branches to the public, the chain said.
It means most of the chain’s 2050 branches are now back up and running again.
Mirror Money exclusively revealed that 800 branches would be reopening on June 18, and now the second phase has been completed.
A Greggs spokeswoman said: “Following the successful reopening of 800 shops in mid-June, we have now moved to the next phase.
“As of today, the majority of our owned estate shops will have reopened nationwide offering a takeaway-only service.”
But things will be a little different inside.
“The health and safety of our colleagues and customers is our priority and for this reason we have put in the time and effort to make a thorough assessment of all shops,” chief executive Roger Whiteside said when the first reopening was announced.
“Although we 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.”
Changes in store include:
- Floor markings and signage to help customers maintain social distancing
- Protective screens at our counters
- Availability of protective workwear for staff
- Additional, more frequent, cleaning measures
- Availability of hand sanitiser
- Encouragement of contactless card payment
Shops are open for takeaway only, with seating areas and customer toilets closed.
There’s also a new menu in place across all Greggs shops can be viewed here.
