As previously reported last December, Panera Bread is coming to Bismarck with a location in Kirkwood Mall’s parking lot. KX News has confirmed that construction is to begin as soon as May 1.
Caribou Coffee is apparently also opening a location in Kirkwood’s parking lot – just west of I. Keating Furniture. This is in addition to their previously announced location at Sunrise Town Centre, which appears to still be on schedule. This location is expected to open by the end of the year.
Joining Caribou will be a new Verizon Wireless store.
