30 stores have already reopened, and a further 71 shops will follow from Monday, including cafes in Birmingham, Bristol, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leeds and Manchester.

It will bring the total number of reopened shops to over 100.

The Pret Chief Executive Pano Christou explained that adaptations had been made including Perspex screens at the tills, and that restrictions will be in place on the number of customers allowed in the stores.

Mr Christou said customers will be provided with hand sanitiser, while members of staff will be offered face coverings.

  • Members of staff in branches due to reopen have undergone a "thorough interview to ensure that they are fit to return to work"
  • Those living with anyone who is vulnerable will not be permitted to return.
  • Stores will run at reduced hours while customers will be made to queue two metres apart.
  • The high street chain said it is also widening its distribution of unsold food to homeless charities.
