Greggs has announced that loads of its stores will now stay open “even later”, which will no doubt be music to the ears of hungry fans nationwide.
The bakery chain – which is one of the country’s largest, and has well over 2,000 outlets dotted across the UK – has always been well-loved by those looking to grab a quick sausage roll, steak bake, or a Yum Yum to satisfy a craving for carbs.
But its latest announcement on social media this week is likely to see it prove more popular than ever before.
Late-night Greggs? Now, that’s a genius move.
Confirming the new extended opening hours on social media this week, Greggs said: “Yep, you heard us right, now loads of Greggs shops are open even later.”
Although the retailer is keeping rather tight-lipped about which stores will be extending their opening hours into the night, and how long they extra they will be staying open for, that hasn’t stopped hundreds of fans taking to social media to say how much they can’t wait to polish off a pasty after a night out.
And if late-night opening hours wasn’t enough to get people excited, Greggs has also announced that some fresh new items are being added to the menu.
“There’s new pizzas and hot desserts, as well as your usual favourites,” the chain added.
The announcement that Greggs is to stay open into the night comes after the bakery chain reported a recent sales boost this week, saying it was trading well in “an environment where cost pressures are significant”.
It added that it expected its full-year profits to be in line with previous forecasts, even despite economic uncertainty and the rising cost of living crisis.
Manchester house goes on sale with life-sized ‘sex doll’ in pictures
A two bedroom house has gone up for sale in Manchester, and the appearance of a surprise guest in its listing pictures has got the city talking.
The mid-terrace family home in Blackley looks completely normal at first, priced at a modest £160,000.
Completely normal, that is, until you spot the stiletto-wearing life-sized sex doll in the corner of one of its rooms.
Wearing a fitted red dress with her legs akimbo and her hands in a strange clenched position with one at her mouth and another in her lap, the lifelike doll has been spotted by eagle-eyed property hunters on the lookout for a bargain.
Reclining on what appears to be either a chaise lounge or a put-up bed in a ‘rest area’ under the stairs, the lifelike mannequin appears to be wearing fishnet stockings underneath her skin-tight bodycon dress.
Accessorised with a wide-brimmed hat and teeteringly-high stilettos, the positioning of the doll in front of what looks like a bedroom has led some online to speculate as to whether she’ll be included in the house price.
Matt Healey backs Scottish Independence as he headlines BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend
Manchester musician Matt Healey backed Scottish Independence last night as he headlined BBC Radio 1’s Big Weekend in Dundee.
The frontman of the pop rock band The 1975 took a moment on stage to address crowds in Camperdown Park on the subject of leaving the union, telling them that Scotland “should definitely just be doing its own thing”.
He continued: “We’re very happy to be here, we have a lot of fond memories of this part of the world.
“Fond memories in this country. This country. That’s a country.
The 1975 singer then went on to tell crowds to huge cheers: “I’m from Manchester and I want my own independence so I can’t imagine how you feel.”
“It’s the BBC, we’re not supposed to be political, but you definitely should just be doing your own thing”, before adding: “Ok let’s not do any jokes, let’s just do some sincere music that’s coming from the heart.”
SNP councillor for Fife Council, David Barratt, later took to Twitter to share the footage commenting that he ‘very much enjoyed’ Matty Healy’s contribution to the debate.
