Greggs has confirmed all of its stores will remain open through the second lockdown.

Back in March, despite being able to open under the original lockdown rules, the bakery giant closed its 1,039 stores over fears of overcrowding and staff safety.

However this time around, with new covid-safe protocols in place, the business has said all stores will remain open for takeaway, with customers also able to order for click and collect or delivery via Just Eat.

A spokesman for the company said: “In accordance with the latest Government guidelines, Greggs shops across the UK will remain open for takeaway, click and collect and delivery.”

Greggs isn’t the only large to-go operator remaining open for the next four weeks, with McDonald’s, Costa and Caffe Nero making similar announcements ahead of the month-long enforced lockdown, which is set to be implemented tomorrow (5 November).

Other brand’s including KFC and Subway are yet to confirm whether they will close their doors, whilst Burger King has announced an estate-wide shutdown for the period.
