It's official: Panera Bread to close its Hastings location
The Panera Bread location in Hastings is officially closing. The store's final day is Tuesday, Aug. 20.
The Hastings location opened 10 years ago and the company signed a 10-year lease at that time. That lease expires at the end of August, and negotiations had been taking place for a number of months between Panera and the landlord. Those negotiations didn't go as Panera had hoped said district manager Sharon Woods.
