Independent bakeries in Ipswich have urged customers to continue to shop local after two Greggs stores opened just a handful of metres from existing bakeries in Ipswich.
In the last six months the national chain has opened a store in Rosehill Retail Park off Felixstowe Road – opposite the Victoria’s Bakery on the corner of Felixstowe Road and Hatfield Road, which is around 60metres away.
Another store has also recently opened in Woodbridge Road just three units along from Martins Bakery (around 30m), prompting the owners of both local firms to raise concerns over Greggs’ decisions.
Both stores are owned directly by Greggs and not operated on a franchise model.

Not sure why they took so long to report on this?!
You will notice many mistakes in the article… it is Woodbridge Road East!
