Pret A Target: Café chain Pret A Manger to add Chicago CityTarget location

Café-within-a-store to offer food, beverages when store opens next July

MINNEAPOLIS — Target is adding fresh, handmade food to its small-format store in Chicago, the mass merchandiser said.

Target announced that Pret A Manger would open a location inside the State Street CityTarget when the store opens next July. The London-based café chain sells sandwiches, soups, salads, coffee and other items, and operates stores in several U.S. and U.K. cities and Hong Kong.

"We believe Pret A Manger will help us provide guests in downtown Chicago with the exceptional, complete shopping experience they have come to expect from Target," Target SVP grocery Annette Miller said. "Our Chicago CityTarget guests can pop in for a fresh sandwich or salad during their regular visits to our store for groceries or apartment essentials."

Target is opening the first round of small-format stores in Chicago, Seattle, San Francisco and Los Angeles next year, with the goal of offering city residents, commuters and tourists the convenience of one-stop shopping, affordable groceries, everyday essentials, fashions and designer collections.
