Greggs stores across Suffolk could be open as soon as mid-June after the company’s trial reopening in the north-east of England was successful.
The bakery chain plans to reopen 800 of its 2,000 stores this month, but has not yet announced the exact locations or date.
In March, Greggs closed all of its stores as the coronavirus lockdown came into place.

Greggs has five branches in Ipswich, two in Bury St Edmunds and one in Stowmarket.
