Coffee chain giant Starbucks has opened its store in Bury town centre, creating 20 jobs.

The shop, situated opposite Greggs and Sketchers at The Rock Shopping Centre, is now welcoming customers to come in and sample its delights.

It is the latest big name brand to open at The Rock since the additions of Ann Summers, Kaspa’s Desserts, Shoe Zone and the first Vanilla store, a women's clothes store, in the North West.
