Greggs has announced that its shop on Mapperley Top is closing down permanently.
The bakery giant today revealed the store on Woodborough Road will shut its doors for good next month.
Gedling Eye contacted Greggs after being told of the rumours.
A spokesman said: “We can confirm that our Mapperley shop is due to close in May.
“We are always on the lookout for new locations and a full list of our shops in the local area can be found at Greggs.co.uk/shopfinder.”
People had mixed reactions to the news.
Sue Brazer, a Mapperley resident, said: “It’s another blow to our high street. A lot of shops are starting to close down around here. Barclays will be going soon. There won’t be anything left on Mapperley Top the way it’s going. I think the council should do something.
Ryan Bishop lives in nearby Sherwood. he said: “I think Mapperley is still better for shops than Sherwood. It’s not terrible to see a chain store go if it’s replaced by a great independent store. I’d love a record or comic shop up here.”
