The Panera Bread at SouthPointe Pavilions has closed and the new Panera at 14th and Pine Lake Road will open soon.
I could not immediately reach Panera's corporate office, but a recorded message played when you call the SouthPointe location says the new location will open "this week."
I have heard it may be opening Saturday.
The Panera will be the first business to open in the small development on the northeast corner of 14th and Pine Lake that's just to the west of Costco. The other businesses locating there are Panda Express, Cattle Bank & Trust and Brakes Plus.
