Greggs is coming to Chesterfield - again.

The well-known bakery chain will occupy the site of the former Burton shop on Burlington Street in June.

A Greggs spokesman said: "This June, we will be relocating our Chesterfield High Street store to a new premises at the old Burton unit, which is only a few doors down from the current shop.

"The same friendly team will still be welcoming customers at the relocated store.

"There are no other Greggs shop closures planned for the area."

The new store will include tables and chairs outside.

Greggs is the largest bakery chain in the UK.

It specialises in savoury products such as sandwiches, pasties and sausage rolls and sweet items including doughnuts and vanilla slices.

Last year, Greggs unveiled two new 'healthy' pasties which both have under 300 calories.

The snacks, with chicken katsu or Bombay potato fillings, shun the indulgent greasiness of flaky pastry for a more heart-friendly sourdough.

Roger Whiteside, the company's chief executive officer, said: "Greggs is well-loved for its traditional pasties and sausage rolls, but we recognise that our customers are increasingly looking for lower calorie and lower fat options."
