But what does the outlet sell and why are prices so cheap?

There are just 10 Greggs outlets in the UK and the Easterly Road store is the only one of its kind in Yorkshire.

The chain's popular pasties, sandwiches and other baked goods can be purchased at a bargain price in store.

Greggs says it can offer the the food at reduced prices because either too much was made, or it came out slightly misshapen and therefore could not be sold in local stores.
