The store will open at 6 a.m. The first 50 dine-in customers will receive Panera’s Pick Two promotion for a year, while the first 500 drive-thru customers will receive a car coaster stone. Beginning at 10 a.m., the first 500 customers will receive a coffee travel mug along with two weeks of free coffee refills.
Promotions will continue on Wednesday and Thursday at the new location, which will offer delivery within an eight-mile radius.
