Greggs have finally announced the opening date for their most recent venture: their first location in Barnstaple.
The famous blue, yellow, and white Greggs logo has been printed across the high street since the beginning of May and now that an opening date has been announced, the community is as excited as ever for the first Greggs in Barnstaple.
The new Greggs will be located in the 61 High Street unit; a unit which was previously occupied by the tech giant Maplin.
Greggs announced last year that they would be expanding their business operations to Barnstaple and not long after this announcement they began searching for employees to make the business venture come along quicker.
John Gregg launched Greggs in 1939 and since doing so, the bakery has opened doors to over 1,750 bakeries across the UK
Even though the majority of the community in Barnstaple are thrilled about the addition of Greggs, many are concerned about their own Bakery.
One baker stated, "We already have several bakeries in Barnstaple, we don't need any more. With Greggs being the newest addition, competition is going to be as difficult as ever."
