Greggs plans move to former Shaws store in Cwmbran

A high street bakery chain plans to close one of its three shops in Cwmbran town centre and reopen in a larger unit.

Greggs has been given planning permission by Torfaen Council to change the use of a former drapers to allow it to sell food for consumption on or off the premises. Shaws closed in December 2022 when the chain went into liquidation. Its shop on General Rees Square has been vacant ever since.

In the application, Greggs says it will close its nearby shop in The Parade to create a new store with space for 20 customers to sit inside and eight to sit outside.

The store on The Parade employs the equivalent of 16 full-time staff. This new store will employ the equivalent of 22 full-time staff.

Opening hours

The council has given Greggs permission to open Monday to Saturday from 6am to 9pm, and from 6am to 6pm on Sunday.
