GREGGS has unveiled plans to move its Galashiels store.

And the new shop could be open by the summer – creating two jobs, the company has revealed this week.

The bakery chain currently has an outlet in Channel Street.

But, as previously reported last week, the company submitted a planning application to move into the former Ozkan’s Grill takeaway in Market Street.

And if successful, it would have an outdoor seating area for customers.

Over the last few months, the former kebab shop has been targeted by vandals.

Since the takeaway closed, windows have been smashed and the store front covered with graffiti.

But proposals submitted to Scottish Borders Council show Greggs is hoping to give the unit a facelift and would install four tables and 11 chairs in the outdoor seating area.

A spokesperson for Greggs told the Border Telegraph: “We are moving our Channel Street shop in Galashiels to a new unit on Market Street, in order to bring a more modern food-on-the-go shop to local customers.

“The shop will open in the summer with two new jobs created.”

The chain, which was launched in Newcastle in 1951, has around 1,600 shops nationwide including Hawick, Kelso and Peebles.
