Greggs Outlet store opens in Bristol – here’s what it sells and why prices are so cheap

Bristol is now home to a Greggs Outlet.

The store in Church Road, Redfield, is the first of its kind in the South West after it opened 11 weeks ago.

There are currently 19 Greggs Outlet shops across the country, which offer the chain’s popular pasties, sandwiches and other baked goods at a bargain price.

Greggs says it can offer the food at reduced prices because either too much was made, or it came out slightly misshapen and therefore could not be sold in local stores.

The Outlet shops are a way for the company to reduce landfill and profits go to The Greggs Foundation.

The first Greggs Outlet opened in Newcastle in 1972 and was known back then as “Greggs ‘SECONDS’ shop”.

The majority of the stores are located in the north of England, but Greggs has said it plans to expand the stores into more locations in the south, including London with 50 branches by 2025.

Customers cannot be guaranteed their favourite pastry or sweet treat as the store can never guarantee what products are going to be delivered each day, but staff at the Church Road store say they find the pasties and sausage rolls to be really popular.

All the food is served cold, apart from the toasties and the store also serves hot and cold drinks at the same price as a normal Greggs.

The vegan sausage rolls are often all gone by midday, but if you get there early you can fill up a basket full of food for around £10 depending on what you get.

Jaci Smith, manager of Greggs Outlet Church Road, said: “At first people didn’t understand it, initially it was a bugbear for some of the trades people who come in for breakfast but they’ve got used to it now.

“The customer base has changed slightly and we have new regulars.”

Shop assistant Kay added: “We get a few customers that say they refuse to go to a normal Greggs now they have got used to the prices here.”

Here is an example of what you can buy for less than £5

Vegan sausage rolls (pack of 4): £1.50

Cheese bakes (pack of 2): £1.20

Vegan ham and cheese baguette: £1

Croissants (pack of 2): 50p

Sticky toffee muffins (pack of 2): 50p

Total: £4.70
