Greggs have reopened a small number of their bakery stores on a trial basis to test safety in social distancing measures.
The bakery have trialled a number of scenarios with their staff behind closed doors to test working practices.
A Greggs spokesman said, “We are initially operating shop trials behind closed doors in order to test the effectiveness of our new operational safety measures.
“We will continue to review this and will invite walk-in customers into our shops only when we can do so in the controlled manner we intended.”
Chief executive Roger Whiteside issued a statement on the firm’s website, saying, “These trials are being conducted across a number of channels, including delivery through Just Eat, Click + Collect and walk-in customers.
“Colleague and customer safety continue to be the primary focus of the decisions we take as we start to reopen our shops.
“Thank you for your patience while we work hard to play our part in getting the nation back up and running again and serving the communities in which we operate.”
