Their bosses were so happy that the firm’s board of directors, led by chief executive Ken McMeikan, helped out in the shop for a day.
Ken joked: “The staff have won us for the day and it’s a privilege to be here and help serve our loyal customers.”
Locals also enjoyed some grub served up by the bosses. Care support worker Sarah Boyd, 26, of Govan, said: “I’ve always like Greggs – and staff are always pleased to see you.”
