“We’re incredibly grateful to all our Team Members and will be doing what we can to help them find new job opportunities.

She added: “Eighteen Team Members have sadly been affected.”

“Although we are working hard to adapt Pret to the new retail environment, the coronavirus pandemic has massively affected our industry and it is no longer financially viable for us to continue operations at this shop.
