Today while passing the Muscle Shoals Publix construction I noticed another sign in addition to the signs for Publix. I only got a brief look at it, but it seemed to have the Panera logo with the words coming soon or opening soon next to it. If that is correct, then it appears Panera bread will open somewhere in the shopping center. I am guessing Panera would build in front, but Panera could go in one of the buildings they have already built.
Is the Shoals big enough for 2 Panera Bread locations? We have already seen the Florence K-Mart and the Florence Ruby Tuesday close, leaving only the Muscle Shoals locations open. Of course the Shoals does have 2 Logan's as of now.
