Jobs have been created at the new Greggs store that opened over the weekend in Bishop Auckland.

The retail giant has announced 13 new jobs created in the area to staff the store at the Bishop Auckland Retail Park.

The shop will stock all of the popular Greggs favourites, including the sausage roll, steak bake and vegan alternatives.

There will also be a range of drinks including cloudy lemonade and iced mocha as we head into the warmer summer months.

Ahead of the warmer weather, Greggs have also launched two brand-new pasta pots - the Piri Piri Chicken Pasta and Pesto and Mozzarella pasta. They are also re-introducing a number of former favourites back to the menu for summer - Sweet Potato Bhaji & Rice, Smoky Cajun Rice with BBQ Chicken & Sweetcorn Fritters, Feta & Tomato Pasta and Chicken & Bacon Pasta.

Customers looking to skip the queues and grab a quick bite on the go can order through Click + Collect via the Greggs App.

The Bishop Auckland shop opens with a modern new look and comfortable indoor and outdoor seating. The shop will be open from 6am – 8pm daily.

Shop Manager Dawn Sutton said: "We can’t wait to welcome both Greggs fans and new customers to our brand-new shop.
