Greggs will reopen around 800 stores from Thursday (June 18) - but sausage roll seekers in Huntingdonshire will have to wait until early July.
Popular stores in Huntingdon High Street, Market Square St Neots and St Ives are not on the reopening list issued by the chain this week.
The nearest Greggs to get a takeaway fix will be at the MFG Huntingdon site in March Road, Hartford.
Bosses aim to open 1000 stores by “early July”.
The new-look stores will have floor markings, protective clothes for staff and screens at counters among several measures to protect against coronavirus spreading.
There will also be a reduced menu to ensure social distancing in kitchens and workspaces.
Greggs had been allowed to stay open throughout the lockdown, offering takeaway and delivery services.
