Percy Ingle bakeries set to close

South and east London bakery chain Percy Ingle is to close all of it’s outlets after 66 years of trading.

The family owned business was founded in 1954 by Percy Ingle, the son of a Hackney baker and had grown to 40 shops by 2000.

They reopened last month, having been forced shut during the coronavirus pandemic in March.

The company confirmed it will close all 48 stores across south and east London and Essex, but an official statement is yet to be released.

Percy Ingle has outlets in Woolwich, Deptford, Catford and Lewisham.
