Family-run Birds Bakery opens its second store in West Bridgford at 10 am on Saturday 13 March, we popped in this morning to take a look!
The new opening at 83 Melton Road, marks the bakery’s 62nd store in the East Midlands and complements the company’s other West Bridgford shop, on Central Avenue.
Julie Fry, manager od the new store told us: ‘We’re passionate about what we do here, and really excited to be bringing our products to another West Bridgford store.’
‘We can’t wait to meet people in the community.’
The ground floor is a café and shop in Birds’ signature style, offering its famous cakes, pastries and popular freshly made bread. Of course because of current lockdown restrictions the indoor seating isn’t available yet.
The new 1,195 sq. ft store has created 14 jobs for the local area and has a purpose-built hot serving counter – to showcase the bakery’s ‘food to go’ offering – as well as seating for 24 people.
Mike Holling sales and marketing director Birds Bakery, said:
“We are delighted to be opening our latest store in the popular location of West Bridgford,” he said.
“This will be our second store in the area, with our first store on Central Avenue being incredibly popular since opening in 1984.
“Melton Road is the perfect location for us, surrounded by local shops. It will attract local residents passing by, as well as those travelling to and from Edwalton and surrounding areas with car parking on site.”
The store features a number of seating areas, including café style chairs and tables as well as comfy sofas in the bay window to offer a welcoming and pleasant experience, when indoor seating is able to reopen again.
Mike added: “We are committed to investing in our stores and despite the current circumstances, we have seen a positive reaction to our take-away offering, showing that people are still looking for sweet treats and feel-good food.”
The new Melton Road Birds store is open now.
Opening times are 8am – 5pm Monday to Saturday.
