A bakery has joined the list of stores open at Wellingborough's Swansgate Shopping Centre.

The Northants Telegraph reported on March 24 that the shopping centre had closed for all retailers apart from those selling essential items and services due to the coronavirus pandemic.

At the time, 11 stores remained open including Boots, Iceland and Superdrug.

Several more have since joined the list of shops which are open for people visiting the centre for essential items, including Don Millers.

A message on the centre's Facebook page said: "If you’ve missed your favourite bakery goodies over the past few weeks, look no further as Don Millers is back.

"However, the safety of our customers has been and will always be our top priority so the following procedures are in place.

"One person will be allowed in the shop at any time, there are markers in place to show ‘in’ and ‘out’ so no crossovers will be possible, and there is an increased frequency of cleaning regimes."
