Greggs has begun trialling its long-awaited click-and-collect service.

A trial has begun for breakfast items at three stores in Manchester.

The service enables customers to order breakfast in advance of collection from the Greggs stores in King Street, Parker Street and Manchester Victoria Station.

Retail and people director Roisin Currie said: “The breakfast click-and-collect trial is the latest initiative we’re looking at to help make life easier for our customers by offering them quick and convenient access to our great-tasting products during the morning rush hour. Our strong customer base in Manchester makes it an ideal place to trial this service, which is designed to make life more convenient for customers in a busy inner city. If the trial is successful, we will look at rolling this service out to other locations.”

The brand is working with Preoday on the service. Preoday chief executive Nick Hucker said: “It has been a pleasure working with Greggs on its new service. The company’s strong brand and the city’s convenience-craving community leaves us in no doubt its customers will be excited to give it a try.”
