New Panera Bread Set to Open on N. Atherton St.
According to The Centre Daily Times, a second Panera Bread location is opening up at 1613 North Atherton Street, across the street from Wal-Mart and right next to TJ Maxx. Shopping and a carb fix all in one? Sounds good to me.
The location was formally occupied by a Sherwin-Williams paint store, which moved across the street next to Best Buy. The new Panera will officially open for business on Friday.
“It came down to space, a good lease agreement and a Panera we felt was needed on this side of town,” said Braden Klinger, District Manager for Panera Bread .
In the past, Onward State has listed Panera (located on Allen Street) as one of the best places to study off campus, one of the best places for a vegetarian option, as well as one of the places to find some of the most valuable treasures when dumpster diving.
So for those of you who live on that side of town, enjoy!
