A GREGGS that is expected to be one of the largest in the UK is set to open ‘in the next few weeks’.

The national bakery chain, famous for its meat and vegan sausage rolls and steak bakes, confirmed that the store, at Wessex Gate Retail Park in Poole, would be opening soon.

As reported, the business submitted plans for an additional sign at the former Carphone Warehouse store, which has lain empty since 2020.

Plans from the site owners, Wessex Gate Limited, for the chain to move in, were approved in October 2022.
