A GREGGS shop in the centre of Farnworth has shut.

The bakery, in Brackley Street, closed its doors for the final time on Thursday.

A sign displayed in the shop’s window reads: “Sorry we’re closing on 18th April, but you can visit your nearest shop at Walkden Ellesmere Centre.”

It is understood that staff have been offered positions at nearby branches.

Greggs have been approached for comment on the reason for the closure.
