The opening of the first Greggs bakery concession in Thornton Heath Tesco has been greeted with a huge amount of excitement by easily pleased residents of Thornton Heath.

The partnership is a trial between the bakery chain and supermarket giants and gives Tesco shoppers the chance to shop the same great selection of products found in standalone Greggs. Popular menu items such as the Steak Bake, freshly made sandwiches and breakfast rolls are available to pick up along with the much maligned Vegan Sausage roll. There is also a full range of freshly ground, Fairtrade coffee.

Raymond Reynolds, Business Development and Property Director at Greggs, said: “This trial gives us the opportunity to bring our range of products to more customers in new locations.”
