Leading food-on-the-go retailer Greggs has officially opened its new Newry story at The Buttercrane Shopping Centre, bringing 14 new jobs to the city.
It’s the tenth company-managed Greggs’ shop in NI with the company having 1,800 shops operating across the UK.
It will offer the full range of Greggs’ products – from its famous baked savouries and freshly ground-to-order coffee menu to confectionery products, soups and sandwiches. Also available will be Greggs’ great value breakfast deal, which includes a bacon, sausage or egg roll plus a hot drink from only £2.
As part of its commitment to offer lighter, healthier alternatives, the shop will stock Greggs’ popular Balanced Choice range, including the Chicken Katsu Bake which is less than 300 calories.
And to coincide with the arrival of summer, local customers will be able to try the new salad menu from Greggs, a range of exciting options which includes Coconut, Lime and Chilli Chicken, as well as Falafel, Harissa, Roast Veg and Grains.
All summer salads are under 400 calories and meet green and amber on the Food Standards Agency traffic light system for fat, saturated fat, salt and sugar.
The shop layout offers customers a food-on-the-go experience, with lots of space for browsing. Seating is also available for customers who wish to relax and enjoy their purchases inside the shop.
Jason Eskdale, manager of Greggs Buttercrane said: “I’m delighted to be leading our team in this new shop. Newry is a very popular and thriving town and we’re excited to bring a taste of Greggs to all who shop, visit and work here!”
Peter Murray, Manager of Buttercrane Shopping Centre added: “We are extremely pleased to welcome Greggs to Buttercrane and regard it as a great addition to our retail offering. There has been a lot of local interest in its arrival with many of our customers eager to be among the first to try the famous Greggs’ product range.”
Greggs Newry Store is open Monday to Saturday (8am to 6pm) and Sunday (1pm to 6pm)
