Gregg’s to close To­ry­glen out­let

Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Edel Ke­nealy

Gregg ’ s Bak e r y has con­firmed it is clos­ing its shop on Aiken­head Road.

But the com­pany failed to state whether re­peated flood­ing in the area had in­flu­enced its de­ci­sion to with­draw from the To­ry­glen premises.

The Re­former re­ported last week that flood­ing, in­clud­ing over spilling sew­ers, were dam­ag­ing three busi­nesses which sit at the junc­tion of Aiken­head Road and Cur­tis Av­enue.

Two weeks ago se­vere thun­der and light­en­ing and heavy rain saw Aiken­head Road turn from a road to a river as wa­ter gushed down to­wards Gregg’s, Wil­liam Hill book­mak­ers and Michael’s Su­per­chippy.

It was the sec­ond flood to hit the shops in six months.

This week Gregg’s Bak­ery would not com­ment on flood­ing prob­lems, stat­ing the de­ci­sion to close the shop was made as part of its con­tin­ued re­view of its busi­ness es­tate.

A spokes­woman for the com­pany said it would make ev­ery ef­forts to re­de­ploy staff to other bak­eries in the city.
