14th and Pine Lake

The new Panera Bread at 1424 Pine Lake Road, shown here under construction a few weeks ago, is ready to open.

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.

Panera also is building another standalone location at about 62nd and O streets that will replace the existing Panera at 66th and P streets. No word yet on when that relocation will take place.
