Greggs opens new and improved shop in Jesmond creating four new jobs

Over the weekend Greggs opened its new and improved shop in Jesmond, creating four new jobs for the area. Previously located at 34 Acorn Rd, the shop has relocated to a larger unit at 4 Acorn Road.

The shop will stock freshly prepared Greggs favourites, such as the on-the-go-retailer’s popular Sausage Roll, Steak Bake and delicious vegan alternatives, in addition to a range of over ice drinks including Cloudy Lemonade and Iced Mocha, which are only available in limited shops across the UK.

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

Ahead of the warmer weather, Greggs have also launched two brand-new pasta pots – the Piri Piri Chicken Pasta and Pesto & Mozzarella Pasta and a handful of returning menu items with new and improved recipes: Sweet Potato Bhaji & Rice, Smoky Cajun Rice with BBQ Chicken & Sweetcorn Fritters, Feta & Tomato Pasta and Chicken & Bacon Pasta. All of which are part of Greggs’ Balanced Choice range, meaning they’re 400 calories or less – a great choice to satisfy lunchtime cravings!

Those looking for a bite to eat in the evening can enjoy hot food such as Southern Fried Chicken Goujons, Potato Wedges and a variety of pizza slices including Margherita, Pepperoni, Spicy Mexican Chicken, Spicy Veg and Pepperoni Hot Shot. After 4pm, customers can pick up any pizza slice with any drink from just £2.85 instead of the usual £3.50 – now that’s more tasty for your money!

Customers looking to skip the queues and grab a quick bite on the go can order through Click + Collect via the Greggs App.

The Jesmond shop opens with a modern and comfortable indoor seating. The opening hours are:

  • Monday – Saturday: 6:30am – 7:00pm
  • Sunday: 7:30am – 5:00pm

Shop Manager Lucy McGivena said: “We can’t wait to welcome both Greggs fans and new customers to our brand-new shop. We’ve got an amazing range of iconic savouries, Fairtrade hot drinks, hot food and healthier choices available for takeaway, sit-in or Click + Collect.”

Gillian Long, Retail Operations Director for Greggs, said: “We’re excited to be welcoming customers to our new and improved shop in Brecon, with four new members joining the existing team. We look forward to providing customers with a modern, convenient new place to experience their Greggs favourites.”
