High street bakery chain Greggs has unveiled plans to open up a new outlet in Inverurie, Aberdeenshire, British Baker can confirm.

Although it is in the early stages, the plans have been submitted to Aberdeenshire council for the bakery to take over the Scottish Hydro Electric store on Market Place in Inverurie.

“We can confirm that we are looking to open a shop later this year,” a Greggs spokesperson told British Baker. “We are currently recruiting for 10 new jobs. Those interested in applying should visit greggsfamily.co.uk.”

Aberdeenshire currently has five Greggs stores, with the bakery chain opening 145 shops in total last year.

In February 2017, Greggs revealed a strategy for growth that included opening 150 new stores in 2017.
