GREGGS will close its doors to pastry lovers on Monday, September 19.

It comes as several other major supermarkets and retails have decided to close their doors on the day of Queen Elizabeth II's funeral.

The longest-reigning British monarch died on Thursday at the age of 96.

Her Majesty's state funeral has been declared a bank holiday and several major retailers and businesses have also decided to close, out of respect.

Greggs has taken the decision to close all its 2,000 UK outlets.

However, some smaller outlets run by franchise partners can decide whether or not to remain open.
