A new Pret A Manger is opening in Orpington this week.

The shop will start trading in the Nugent Shopping Centre in Cray Avenue from Thursday November 9.

A menu of sandwiches, baguettes, salads, snacks, hot food and sweet treats will be on offer and all fresh items will be made daily in the shops’ kitchen by Pret's team of 21 staff.

Manager Cristina Jorge Ramirez said: “This is a really exciting new opening for us and we’re looking forward to getting to know our customers here at Nugent (and getting to explore the shops on our breaks too!).”

Centre manager for Nugent Tina Powley, said: “Pret is a very welcome addition to the centre and we’re delighted to add another great food brand to the line-up.

“At the same time, we’re also pleased to add an extra 10 spaces to the car park to help visitors park quickly and easily.”

The shop will donate unsold food to St Christopher Church to help the homeless.

Pret Foundation Trust project manager Juanita Cracchiolo said: “As part of Pret’s commitment to help alleviate the pressures of homelessness in the UK, our shop is very proud to be partnering with St Christopher Church, where we will be donating unsold food at the end of each day.

“We are looking for more 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 us in the evenings.”
