PIE lovers are to reap the benefits as competition between rival bakers steps up in Lancaster.
In fact, hungry workers may not even have to put their hands in their pockets in order to get their fix of fresh pastry and hot meats.
Days after budget chain Poundbakery opened its doors to customers in Penny Street, Greggs made its presence felt on the high street.
Our picture, taken on Wednesday lunchtime, shows a Greggs worker giving out free samples at the entrance to the chain’s Penny Street shop.
But Greggs said there was nothing mischievous about their policy of “sampling”.
A spokesman said: “We can confirm Greggs is handing out tastings from its range of products in the vicinity of its three shops in Lancaster.”
