Greggs are trialling their brand new delivery service in Newcastle in a bid to bridge the gap between pastries and punters.

The move follows the trend of high street retailers taking their product online and making it more accessible to their consumers.

The initiative launched this Monday to the 14,000 workers based at Newcastle's Colbalt Centre retail area with an aim to trial the service in both Manchester and London at a later date.

The scheme will then be rolled out across Newcastle's 29 outlets across the city including Gosforth, its place of origin.

With a minimum spend of £25 applying to all orders it might be worth dabbling in Greggs new healthier options ranging in a choice of gluten free and low calorie options recently released this summer.

Raymond Reynolds, retail director at Greggs, said:

Convenience is key in the food-on-the-go market and we are extremely excited to offer delivery of a selection of our great tasting freshly prepared food directly to our customers by trialling a free delivery service in one of our Newcastle shops. We will be increasing the number of trial shops in the weeks ahead and will share more information on this as it becomes available.
