A brand new Greggs store is set to open in Ayr, the Advertiser can confirm.

The popular bakery already has four stores in the town at Heathfield Retail Park, Allison Retail Park and two on Ayr High Street.

Now it looks like a fifth will soon be following, with the new premises set to open within the Tesco superstore on Whitletts Road.

Signs had been erected around the Tesco store to announce the news, with job opportunities opening up as well.

No official opening date has been set for the new store.

A Greggs spokesperson confirmed:  “Greggs is due to open a new shop in Tesco Ayr within the next few weeks.

"We will be able to share further details with you closer to the opening.”

Anyone interested in a job at the new store can find out more information on the Greggs website.
