Pret A Manger coming to city shopping centre this summer

Property investor and car parking operator, Town Centre Securities PLC (TCS), says coffee and fresh sandwich operator Pret A Manger is set to open at the Merrion Centre, in Leeds.

Pret has signed a lease to occupy 4,510 sq ft of space over the ground and first floor at 42-44 Woodhouse Lane. The outlet is set to open this summer.

Pret, which employs over 8,500 people in the UK, confirmed in September 2021 that it was aiming to double the size of the business and open more than 200 new stores in Britain within the next five years.

Charles Newman, associate director at Town Centre Securities (TCS), owners of the Merrion Centre, said: “We are delighted to welcome Pret to our eclectic offering at the Merrion Centre.

“This latest deal will enhance our fantastic current range of food and beverage operators and we are confident that it will prove a welcome addition for the surrounding office workers and students alike.”
