Having already opened its first branch in the North West in Wilmslow earlier this year, Gail’s, the much-loved bakery from London, has announced that it will be coming to Altrincham next. The branch will be the second northern location for Gail’s, with a Manchester spot expected to also be coming soon.
Situated on Shaw’s Road in the market town of Altrincham, Gail’s will open their second bakery in the north of England on Monday 27th March, serving their signature artisan sourdough breads, pastries, sandwiches, and cakes alongside its specialty house blend coffee.
The opening of Gail’s bakeries in the region reinforces its long-standing ties to the area following The Bread Factory, Gail’s sister-brand and wholesale bakery, opening their Manchester bakery in Openshaw in 2017. It has since supplied high quality, artisan breads to some of the region’s top local restaurants.
Gail’s is committed to improving the end-to-end food system and is also passionate about reducing waste and sourcing sustainably. The critically acclaimed Waste Not range of bread, pantry and pastry products are produced by incorporating by-product ingredients from food making processes, like off-cuts from dough and yesterday’s bread. Plus, a newly established partnership with FareShare and Manchester based EatWellMCR will allow the distribution of any surplus food to those in the region who need it most in Altrincham and surrounding neighbourhoods.
The bakery known for their fancy loaves of bread, maple bacon brioche and afternoon tea treats submitted plans in September 2022 to fit out a new site on Manchester’s King Street in the former White Stuff unit to transform it into a café. Should the application be approved, this means Mancs will be able to feast on a seasonal menu of soups with freshly baked sourdough, sandwiches and sweet treats, but until the possible arrival of Gail’s bakery it’s a short drive to either the new, soon-to-open Altrincham branch or Wilmslow.
Gail’s will open its Altrincham bakery on March 27, trading from 7am-7pm daily. Gail’s, 5-7 Shaw’s Rd, Altrincham, WA14 1QU.
