A Derby store that closed earlier this week explained the reason for the closure.
A sign on the door of The Hot Bread Shop, in Osmaston Road, Allenton, read: “We will be closed until Saturday, July 4 for Covid-19 training and installation of security measures. Thank you.”
A spokesperson for Derby City Council said the facility carried out a food hygiene visit on Tuesday, June 30.
The board could not provide further details as the store is in the appeal period for the food hygiene assessment system.
The store manager told Derbyshire Live: âWe had a food hygiene inspection and received feedback on the quality of the equipment.
âWe have cleaned everything up and are more than ready to reopen. “
The manager of a nearby store said staff were “hosing down” the premises.

The person, who declined to be named, said the store suddenly closed in the middle of the day earlier this week.
They said, “Looks like they’re deep cleaning, staff are hosing down with rubber boots.”
In a Facebook post, nearly 50 locals speculated that the store would shut down abruptly.
