Greggs heads to Manchester’s MediaCity to serve “dedicated fan base”

Greggs fans across MediaCity are set for a treat this Summer as the food, on-the-go retailer announces it is set to open in the heart of the creative and tech destination in the next few months creating 25 new jobs.

MediaCity is a waterside community part of Salford Quays in Salford, Greater Manchester. It is home to some of the “world’s most exciting” creative, tech and media brands, from BBC North and ITV to Ericsson, The Hut Group Group, Kellogg’s and over 250 creative and tech businesses.

The 1,500 sq ft shop will stock freshly prepared Greggs favourites, including its popular sausage roll, steak bake and delicious vegan alternatives. Freshly made sandwiches, savouries, sweet treats and Fairtrade hot drinks will also be available for those looking to grab a bite on-the-go.

The brand-new Greggs will open in the former Booths unit next to the new Co-op store, creating 25 new, local jobs with recruitment well underway.

Gillian Long, retail operations director for Greggs, said: “We are delighted to be opening a new shop at MediaCity this summer to provide customers with a modern, convenient and new place to experience their Greggs favourites on the go.”

Chris Reay, MediaCity property director, added: “We know there’s a dedicated Greggs fan base across MediaCity and after listening to feedback we’re thrilled to secure Greggs who will be opening a significant sized store here this Summer.

“It will provide a good value, convenience food offering which will be in demand from our growing numbers of workers, residents and visitors alike. It will be an incredible success here.”
