It’s official! Greggs will open one of the UK’s biggest stores in Co Armagh and much sooner than expected.
The bakery chain have this afternoon confirmed they will open a new shop in High Street Mall in Portadown on Thursday, May 17.
And the new shop will create 11 new jobs in total.
It is the fourteenth company-managed Greggs shop to open in Northern Ireland since March 2016.
The new Greggs shop will be managed by Steven Hodgeson who said: “I’m delighted to be leading our team in this new shop. High Street Mall is a very popular and busy shopping hub in the heart of Portadown and we’re excited to bring a taste of Greggs to all who use the centre. They can expect a very warm welcome!”
John Anderson, Operations Manager of High Street Mall added: “We at High Street Mall extend a warm welcome to our latest arrival Gregg’s, their opening is testament to the increasing confidence in the Centre.
“The opening of this new store will add to an already diverse retail offering and encourage an increase in footfall to the Centre.
“At High Street Mall we have other deals progressing and we anticipate making further announcements in the near future.”
The Greggs store will stretch to around 2,800 sq ft and will have direct access from the main street with a secondary entrance from within the High Street Mall.
The new shop is open Monday – Saturday 7am-6pm and Sunday 9am-5pm.
