Shops will be open for takeaway only, with all seating areas and customer toilets remaining closed. To keep customers and colleagues safe, cash will not be taken with payment only accepted via card, contactless or Greggs Rewards.

Greggs will be offering a digital-only service at a small number of shops though Just Eat or the new Greggs Click and Collect service.

Only one adult per household will be permitted to enter the shop at a time to join a social distanced queue, and there will be a reduced number of colleagues behind the tills.

Roger Whiteside, Greggs Chief Executive said: “Over the past month, we have carried out robust trials using our new operational and social distancing measures and they have progressed well.

"This has allowed us to move to our next re-opening phase with just over 800 of our shops welcoming customers back this week.

Greggs has two Scarborough stores - in Westborough and Brunswick Shopping Centre - neither are included in the reopening plan.

Greggs in The Promenades Shopping Centre in Bridlington also remains closed.
