Bakery giant Greggs has signed a 10-year lease on a new branch at a multi-million pound retail park development.
The company has agreed a deal on the new 1,250 sq ft building with Birmingham-based property company Hortons’ Estate Ltd.
Work on the store at Cannock Gateway Retail Park, which is located off Churchbridge Island, has been completed and 12 new jobs have been created.
Greggs is the latest business to sign up for the development – which is one of the largest out-of-town retail schemes to be built in the Midlands.
Other occupiers include TK Maxx, Sofaworks, Burger King and Costa Coffee.
Roisin Currie, retail and people director for Greggs, said: “We’re delighted to be able to invest in Cannock, bringing new jobs to the area and providing both new and existing customers with a modern and convenient new shop.”
Steve Tommy, head of asset management at Hortons’ said: “We’re very pleased to have completed the construction of this new building and are delighted to welcome Greggs to our impressive line-up of brands at Cannock Gateway Retail Park.
“This development has been a huge success since opening five years ago and continues to offer the residents of Cannock a high-quality retail and leisure experience that supports the local economy.”
