The Harrogate shop is taking shape.

Cornish Bakery has announced it will open its first Harrogate shop next week.

The eat-in or take-out bakery will be based in the former Paperchase unit that closed at the end of May.

Cornish Bakery, which has more than 50 shops in the UK, sells pasties, breakfast pastries, cakes and coffees.

The Stray Ferret revealed in July the company was heading to upmarket James Street. Now the company has revealed the opening date.

The shop, which will serve customers from 8am to 6pm every day of the week, will provide competition to the nearby Greggs bakeries as well as the Cornish Pasty Bakery in the Victoria Shopping Centre.

The unit was originally the home of a chemist and later part of the Ogden jewellery store, which is now its neighbour.

Cornish Bakery founder and owner Steve Grocutt said:

“We are delighted to be opening our Cornish Bakery in the beautiful spa town of Harrogate.

“We are on a constant journey to redefine what a bakery is does and what it can be, and we therefore build all our bakeries differently.”

He added:

“We have taken on this historic Harrogate property, uncovering some interesting features within it that will be showcased in the beautiful interior we have created.

“We also believe a bakery should be part of the community so our newly employed team will be actively seeking opportunities to work with local organisations in the Harrogate area.”
