Greggs invests in Newton Abbot with new shop

Leading food-on-the-go-retailer, Greggs, is to open a new shop at 3 Market Walk in Newton Abbot on Friday 23 February, creating 12 new jobs.

The shop layout is designed to meet the demands of busy food-on-the-go shoppers to offer customers a contemporary food-on-the-go experience. Seating is available for customers who wish to relax and enjoy their purchases inside the shop.

The shop will offer savouries and sandwiches, freshly prepared throughout the day, as well as a range of confectionary products. Those looking for a lighter option can sample the Balanced Choice range; a selection of sandwiches, salads, soups, porridge and fruit - all for less than 400 calories. Customers can also enjoy a wide range of hot drinks, including freshly ground coffee which is made with a unique blend of 100% Fairtrade Arabica beans and rich-tasting Robusta beans.

Roisin Currie, retail and people director for Greggs, said:

“We’re delighted to be able to invest in Newton Abbot and provide our valued customers with a modern and convenient new shop. We hope our new and existing customers enjoy the wide range of products on offer, whether they’re grabbing a hot cup of coffee, a freshly-made sandwich or a delicious savoury or sweet treat.”

Mayor of Newton Abbot, Cllr Ann Jones, said:

“With the arrival of Greggs this is sure to be a popular addition to the heart of our town. Any business which encourages more people to shop and visit Newton Abbot is always welcome so thank you to everyone involved with this project.”

Sally Henley, Newton Abbot Town Development Manager, commented on the new opening:

“Greggs investment in our town has not only created a smart looking shop, which will attract a high level of footfall, it has also created welcome employment opportunities. Many people have been looking forward to our very own branch of Greggs opening. It’s a popular brand which shoppers have been demanding for a number of years now and so there will be quite a bit of celebrating when those doors finally open in Market Walk!"

Teignbridge District Council’s Chairman, Cllr Timothy Golder, said:

"This is a massive vote of confidence in the future of Newton Abbot and I thank all those concerned at Teignbridge District Council who made it happen. With work having just started on the Market Walk refurbishment these are exciting times for the town.”

Shop opening times are 7am to 6pm, Monday to Saturday and 9am to 5pm on Sunday.
