Pret a Manger to open another 20 branches and extend the 50% discount for NHS staff

Pret said it will reopen multiple branches after finding a way to operate safely during the coronavirus epidemic.

The chain started a process with 10 branches open on April 16 and now thinks it is ready to triple that number.

“We recently reopened 10 stores near hospitals and restarted food donations to our charity partners,” said Pret Pano Christou CEO.

“I believe we have found a way of operating that reflects government leadership and looks after our teams and customers.”

This means that another 20 stores will open for take-out and delivery tomorrow.



Pret has found a way to reopen the stores

Pret has around 400 stores in the UK which closed on March 21st.

Christou also said that he intends to make sure that the community benefits too.

“I am also happy to say that we are extending our 50% discount for NHS workers until May 15 and, of course, we will ensure that our unsold food goes to an even greater number of our charity partners,” he said.
