Greggs is planning to open a new shop complete with eating area in a former city centre opticians.

The national bakery firm intends to open its latest store in a unit formerly occupied by Dollond & Aitchison in King Edward Street.

Greggs already has shops in Prospect Street, Jameson Street and St Stephens Shopping Centre.

A spokesman said: "We are looking to open a new shop in Hull later this year."

The Mail understands staff in other branches have been informed it will open in July.

In January, its Prospect Street branch was given a makeover "designed to meet the demands of busy food-on-the-go shoppers". Improvements included the introduction of seating and free wi-fi.

Last year Greggs closed its Whitefriargate branch. At the time, it said: "We are currently reshaping our estate through a combination of shop relocations, reformatting and some closures.

"While we continue to believe in the long-term opportunity to grow the number of Greggs shops, our priorities continue to be improving the quality of our existing estate, enhancing the efficiency of our existing supply chain, developing our product offering and evolving our service to meet our food on the go customers' needs."
