GREGGS fans can still get their pasty fix despite stores being closed during the coronavirus outbreak thanks to Iceland.
The bakery chain announced it was closing all of its 2,050 branches across the UK from Tuesday (March 24) to protect customers and employees from contracting and spreading the virus.

Greggs had already stopped customers from going into stores, offering takeaway service instead after the government ordered all pubs, restaurants and cafes to close last week.
Its 25,000 staff will continue to be paid "for as long as is practicable", the company said, with the support from the government's coronavirus job retention scheme.
But fans of the bakery won’t miss out on its tasty treats during lockdown as Iceland is still selling Greggs products.
The frozen food supermarket began selling Greggs goods in 2016 and it is still offering them today.
Some of Greggs most famous items – including a four-pack of sausage rolls, two pack of steak bakes and two pack of chicken bakes – are on sale for £1.89.

Its sausage, bean and cheese melts and cheese and onion bakes are on offer at just £1 for a two pack.
Other products include a 433g bag of 16 mini sausage rolls for £1.89, a two pack of bacon and cheese wraps for £2, and a two pack of corned beef bakes for £1.89.

Iceland shoppers do need to be aware that they may struggle to get online deliveries as it's prioritising the elderly, vulnerable and those self-isolating.
For those shopping in store, we advise you to make sure you're at least two metres – or 6ft – from other shoppers to protect yourself and others from catching COVID-19.
Greggs isn’t the only chain that sells its products outside of its shop.
Starbucks and Nando's – which both announced last week they were closing their branches for the foreseeable future – sell their products in supermarket stores.
Asda, Tesco and Morrisons sell Starbucks' 200g bags of ground coffee and whole beans for £3.50, while the bags are £3.75 in Sainsbury’s.
Its premixed drinks, including mocha Frappuccinos and caffe lattes are £1.25 at Asda, but range between £1.70 and £1.80 at Tesco, Sainsbury’s and Morrisons.
Nando's meanwhile sells meal kits, sauces, marinades and rubs at Morrisons, Tesco, Asda and Sainbury’s.
Its 125g bottles of its famous peri peri sauces are on sale for £2 at Tesco, Morrisons and Sainbury’s while Asda sells 265g bottles of its marinades for £1.99.
Tesco and Sainsbury’s sell its 360g meal kits for £3.50, while at Asda they’re slightly cheaper at £3.20.

It comes as a series of shops announced their closures following a lockdown implemented by Prime Minister Boris Johnson.
