Pret reducing prices to compete with Greggs during lunchtime

Pret has started slashing prices in response to the rising cost of living in order to compete with its rivals.

Eight sandwiches are available for as little as £2.99 in the chain's Made Simple line. The meal deal, which includes four vegan products, is part of Pret’s new range to help customers spend less.

Pret has also launched a £5 baguette deal for January - customers are now able to buy any full-size baguette with Pret’s crisps or popcorn for £5.

The move will spark a price war with its rival Greggs, as both companies stare down the barrel of double-digit inflation.

However, Pret will still be more expensive than Greggs.

What is on Pret’s menu?

The Made Simple Granary Sandwich range - egg mayo, BLT, tuna and cucumber, mature cheddar and pickles, chicken salad, ham salad, ham and cheese, and hummus and vegetables, with prices starting from £2.99.
