Greggs, the leading bakery food-on-the-go retailer in the UK, with more than 2,050 retail outlets throughout the country, has closed its shop estate in order to protect its staff and customers during the Coronavirus crisis.

Greggs had already acted quickly to follow Government guidelines, helping to prevent the spread of the virus in its shops and supply chain. In addition to increased hygiene and separation measures, Greggs converted all of its shops to provide a solely take-away service accepting card payments only and has been advising all customers to follow social distancing guidelines while waiting to be served.

“It is now clear that to protect our people and customers we need to go further and temporarily close our shops completely,” says Roger Whiteside OBE (pictured), chief executive of Greggs. “During this period, with support from the Government’s Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme, we intend to maintain employment of colleagues at full contract hours for as long as is practicable.”

He adds: “Whilst the outlook during this crisis remains uncertain Greggs is a resilient business with strong growth credentials and we should be confident of its ability to navigate this event and return to growth when the economy recovers.”
