A social media video of Greggs read, “We make tidy food, we make fashion. Together we’re unstoppable.”

The partnership will also see Greggs open a 130-seat ‘Tasty by Greggs’ cafe in Primark’s Birmingham flagship store on February 12.

A pop-up store in Soho, central London, will preview the clothing collection between February 17 and 18.

Raymond Reynolds, director of business development for Greggs, said his customers have continually asked for Greggs-branded clothing.

“So it’s great that together with Primark we can now offer our first official range across the UK,” he said.

Tim Kelly, director of new business development at Primark, said the retailer is keen to offer collections that customers cannot find anywhere else.

Greggs has recovered well after its business model was initially challenged by the COVID-19 pandemic. Last month, it raised its earnings outlook for the full year. Read more
