Pret a Manger to open Shrewsbury store
Sandwich and coffee shop chain Pret a Manger is coming to Shrewsbury.
It had been rumoured before Christmas that the company was considering opening a branch in the town centre and now plans have now been lodged with Shropshire Council to transform a vacant shop on Pride Hill in to a cafe and take away.
The former Bank store at the bottom of the town's main shopping street will be transformed in to a sandwich bar selling wraps, bagels and salads along with hot and cold beverages, smoothies and shakes.
It will be the first Pret a Manger in Shropshire.
It is not yet known when the shop will open or how many jobs will be created.
The Pret will be in the former Bank store at the bottom of Pride Hill:
