Greggs could open a new store in Honiton as early as next year, the Herald can report.

Earlier this week, it was revealed in planning documents that the popular bakery chain was looking at opening in Heathpark Industrial Estate.

Now the company has confirmed it is looking into setting up shop in Honiton, but has remained tight-lipped on how many jobs would be created from the venture.

A spokeswoman said: “We are looking into the possibility of opening a new shop in Honiton in early 2019, and will have more information about exactly where and when in the near future.”

Plans have been submitted to East Devon District Council for a new aluminium roller shutter door, two new air conditioning condenser units and one extract grille to be installed at the Unit 1, in Reme Drive.

It is believed Greggs will set up shop in the unit formerly occupied by Real Wood Furniture, which has now moved into the neighbouring Countrywide unit.

However, combined plans submitted to the council reveal Greggs signage above the proposed fittings.

It is believed that Greggs will occupy one-half of Unit 1, formerly occupied by Real Wood Furniture, on Reme Drive.

Real Wood Furniture has moved into one-half of Unit 2 (formerly Countrywide), with German Kitchen Company taking the other side.

Unsubstantiated rumours suggest Toolstation will fill the other half of Unit 1.

The application still has to be considered by planning officers.
