Pret A Manger’s new store on Fargate will open in a couple of months
Pret A Manger has announced that its new Sheffield store will open on Fargate in early November, with the transformation due to begin in the next couple of days.
The national chain, which serves fancy soups, sandwiches, salads, coffee and a range of cold drinks, is currently on the lookout for staff and new charity partners for its Sheffield store. Pret is looking for charities in the city to donate unwanted food to at the end of each day, as part of the chain’s commitment to alleviating the pressures of homelessness in the UK. Nationally the scheme has given more than three million food items to hostels and shelters, in Sheffield, Pret’s Meadowhall store already donates to Roundabout.
Juanita Cracchiolo, Pret Foundation Trust manager, said: “We’re currently looking for local charities to support through food donations each night, and would love to be contacted by any organisations who feel they could benefit from collecting fresh, unsold food from our new Fargate shop in the evenings once we open in November. It makes us proud to know that the food we hand-make in our shops each day, is not only enjoyed by customers, but is also donated to very worthwhile places once our shops close for the evening.”
