New ‘bright and welcoming’ Greggs now open in city centre

A huge new Greggs has opened in Liverpool’s city centre.

The popular bakery chain has set up shop at Queen Square Travel Centre, with the refurbishment the first to have taken place on the site in more than 20 years.

Plans for the new Greggs venue were revealed in May by Greggs chief executive Roger Whiteside, who also announced new sites at Leeds Bradford Airport, Newcastle’s Central Station and Canary Wharf in London.
