Pret A Manger to re-open store at Milton Keynes Central next week

Pret A Manger has today announced it will reopen its store at Milton Keynes Central for takeaway and delivery from Monday onwards (1/6).

This is part of Pret A Manger's plan to reopen a further 203 shops across the UK on Monday bringing the total number of reopened shops to over 300.

Pret will be offering a limited menu of some of its most popular sandwiches, salads, and baguettes, as well as hot and cold drinks, bakery items, fruit, and snacks. 

As part of the phased reopening, the company has introduced several new safety measures to help keep customers and Team Members safe, in line with Government guidance. These include: 

  • Protective Perspex screens fitted to the till counter.
  • Restricted customer flow into shops, with the number of people allowed inside at any one time based on the square footage of the shop.
  • Social distancing restrictions in kitchens, which will allow only one person in certain areas of the kitchen at any one time – for example, fridges or staff rooms.
  • Enhanced cleaning processes, including 30-minute sanitising of all hand contact surfaces.

Pano Christou, CEO of Pret, said: “One of the best things about Pret is the way our teams rise to new challenges and that’s exactly what we’ve seen over the past few weeks. We’re rapidly transforming our business in light of the pandemic and the dramatic drop in city centre footfall. The changes we’ve been making include new ways to serve customers and bring Pret’s products to our customers’ homes safely. It's going to continue to be tough for Pret in the months ahead, and I'd like to thank our Team Members who are returning to work and making reopening possible."

Pret has also expanded its delivery operation, with delivery available through Deliveroo, Just Eat and UberEats, dependent on the shop’s location.

Pret A Manger at Milton Keynes Central will be open Monday to Friday from 7am to 6pm.
