Greggs fans are all saying the same thing after new outlet opens in their city

GREGGS fans are seeing double after a new branch opened opposite an existing outlet.

The two bakeries are 25ft from each other — or the length of 50 six-inch sausage rolls.

The extra-large 1,700sq ft store opened yesterday, replacing a Game store in Norwich, where locals say it is now “more pie street than high street”.

The older one will eventually close — but will be replaced by another round the corner, 900ft away.

Greggs currently has 23 branches in Norfolk, with nine in Norwich alone.

Local plumber David Smyth, 44, said: “I’m delighted. We’re very blessed to have so many Greggs in the city and the county and they are always rammed.”

Veterinary nurse Samantha Burridge, 44, added: “It’s the only thing people have been talking about.

“We’re very excited.  People have always been queuing up to get in so two new stores is great.”

But Mark Jackson, in Norwich with daughter Holly, was unimpressed.

He said: “That’s all we need — more Greggs and charity shops.”

The firm promised that the new store will “stock freshly prepared Greggs favourites, including the new Christmas menu offerings of the festive bake and the all-new vegan turkey-free and stuffing baguette”.
