Panera to open June 27

Panera Bread will be open for business when students arrive back on campus this fall.

The restaurant, located at 1048 Chapel St., is slated to open on June 27. Construction of this prime 4,000 square-foot space next to Starbucks will soon be complete, so students can enjoy sandwiches, soups, bread and coffee on their walks to and from class.

The bakery will take the spot that once held News Haven, a specialty boutique selling national and international newspapers and magazines.

Panera Bread was founded in 1981.
