Pret a Manger Is Closing One Of Its Locations in Boston's Back Bay
A London-based chain of sandwich shops that is in the middle of an expansion in the Boston area has decided to close one of its stores within the city.
According to a Twitter post sent yesterday, a rumor was going around that the Pret a Manger location at 855 Boylston Street in the Back Bay was getting ready to close. A phone call placed to the shop this morning has confirmed this, with the person taking the call saying that today is indeed the last day of business for that location. It appears that other locations of Pret a Manger--including one in the Back Bay (in the old Borders space on Boylston Street) and others in Boston's Financial District (Arch Street, Federal Street, and Franklin Street)--will remain open.
As reported earlier here, it is possible that at least a dozen new outlets could be coming to Boston and Cambridge eventually, with the next one coming to State Street in the Financial District.
