Pret A Manger: Get Ready to Eat a Free Sandwich!


Earlier we noticed that Brit chain Pret A Manger had moved into the former Tisserie space at 857 Broadway (at 17th Street), and now comes official word that when it opens for a test run this Friday, it will give away 3,000 free sandwiches starting at 12:15 p.m. provided you snag one of the flyers that will be given away at the Union Square subway entrances between 8 a.m. and 9:25 a.m. that morning. Pret is calling this the Guinea Pig Day for what will be their U.S. flagship (the store features a fresh design and free Wi-Fi), but for better or worse, cuy wont be served instead, Pret is sourcing food directly from Greenmarket vendors. The location opens fully on June 22 (this is Prets 22nd New York location, see ).
