Galloways
Founded In Wigan As "The Wigan Pie Shop" They Are A Family Owned Business With Major Bakeries In Preston, St Helens And Ecclestone. The Pies Are Still Baked In Store Though. Outside Of Wigan Town Their Shops Are Not Really Seen Much- There's One In Billinge And Another In Burscough Though. Nice Pies, But The Pastry Is A Bit Soggy.

Greggs
Found Across The Country, Over 1200 Branches Stretching From Oxford Road In London To Gerrard Street In Ashton And Even Antwerp In Belgium. Not Too Bad But Quite A Bit Pricey And The Pie Crust Is Often Rather Dry. One Of Very Few Pie Shops With Shareholders.

Greenhalghs
It's Pronounced "Green-oltchs". Bolton Born Pie Shop, Slightly More Upmarket Than You Average Bakery, Rather Traditional Feeling. Voted Independent Bread Business Of The Year In 1999, With 38 Shops Around The North West. Flakey Pastry.

Hampsons
Another Bolton Bakery Now Owned By Lyndale Foods Limited. Their Pies Are Bugger To Get Out The Tin Foil Thing. Great Value Though With The "Two Pies For A Pound" Offer, Thus Making Them My Pie Shop Of Choice!

I Can't Say Much About These As I've Only Seen Their Delivery Vans- A Little Yellow Bedford Rascal If You Can Help Send In A Review!

Hollands
Proper Decent Lancashire Pies Based In Baxenden. After Dominating The Pie Market Their Moving Onto The Pasty And Sausage Roll Sector. Their Frozen Pies Available In All Good Supermarkets Are Sadly Lacking.

Mr Muffin
Bakeries In Shevington, Wigan, And In-Between Shevington & Wigan. From What I've Heard They're Quite Good.

Pooles
Once The Undisputed Kings Of Pie Retailing In Wigan Since 1847. Taking Over Numerous Independent Bakeries They Had Shops Everywhere. But Come The Late 1990's The Bloated Pooles Empire Imploded And Over Night All Their Shops Where Emptied And The Window's White Washed Over. This Disaster Also Coincided With A Slump In Wigan Warriors Performance, And A Rise In The Latics... Surprisingly Both Teams And Pooles Where Owned By Dave Whelan. However Pooles Are Making A Come Back! And You Can Buy Pooles Pies In The JJB Stadium, Which Whelan Owns...

Pimbletts
From St Helens But Alreet All The Same I Suppose. They Specialise In Finest Quality Wedding And Other Celebratory Cakes. Owned By John Pimblett (The 3rd). Not Really Seen Much Further North Than Carr Mill Dam- A Sign Of Success.

Rathbones
Another Pie Brand Aquisitioned By Dave Whelan's Whelco. The Newton Based Company Was Then Absorbed By Pooles And All Their Shops Changed Names. However There Are Still A Number Of Rathbones Delivery Vans Knocking Round Wigan. Their Bakery Can Be Seen From The Railwayline To Southport.

Sayers
Big Regional Sellers From Liverpool Seen Round Merseyside, The Wirral And Northern Wales. Part Of The Lyndale Group As Well, Getting More Like Cafe's Now Though. Pie's Aren't Usually Too Fresh And Who Buys Coffee With A Pie?

Twiss
A Big Bakery Cafe Type Thing Next To The Canal In Ince Reet Next To The Appallingly Underwhelming And Bland 'Wigan' Sign, It Should Be Huge And Covered With Neon Lights Not A Little White Rectangle! Anyway The Pie's Are All Right But Can Be Overdone.

Waterfields
A Newish And Upcoming Family Run Bakery From Leigh, With Shops All Over The Place Now The Letters Of The Word WATERFIELDS Above The Shop Seem To Have A Tendency To Fall Off And You Don't Often See A Shop With The Complete Name Above The Door.
