Editorial: Panera's closing isn't the city's fault
Not long after we posted our story about Panera Bread closing its Hastings location, comments started coming in from upset readers who are sad to hear the restaurant is officially closing.
Many, it seems, want to blame the city council and the city staff.
One person asked: How can the city let CVS come to town, and how can the city let Panera leave?
The answer to that question may disappoint some readers. It’s not the city’s fault.
