Greggs to trial late-night opening hours

Greggs is to launch a pilot of extended opening hours in a selection of its shops across the UK.
Some branches already stay open late, with one in Westminster closing at 23:00 and another in Newcastle opening until 20:30 or 21:00.
The bakery chain's announcement came as it reported a strong rise in sales and profits, partly due to the popularity of its new vegan sausage roll.
Profits in the first half of the year jumped to £36.7m from £24.1m.
Total sales rose 15% to £546m, while like-for-like sales - which strip out the impact of store openings and closures - in company-managed shops were up 10.5%.
