Pret A Manger has updated on its reopening plan, with a further 47 shops to open by 12 April.

Pret currently has 276 shops operating for takeaway and delivery, with more planned to open over the next few weeks.

From 12 April, the brand will have 323 open, with outdoor seating to be offered at as many shops as possible.

More of Pret’s 389-strong UK estate will open before the end of April, with dates for some of these, such as those travel hubs, are to be confirmed.

The company hopes to have all indoor seating areas at all shops open from 17 May in line with the government’s roadmap.

Pret will be operating reduced hours, while menu items available will vary by shop.

Employees and customers visiting Pret will be expected to wear face coverings, with protective Perspex screens fitted to the till counter.

Customer flow into shops will be restricted, with the number of people allowed inside at any one time.
