Panera - Shops @ Don Mills?

Does anyone have any inside scoop on this location of Panera? I had thought they were going into the Shops, but now see that they have been dropped off the list.

    Well, a temporary sign has been up for a little while, but there doesn't look like much is happening. Last I heard it was June, but who knows. As Davwud pointed out, there have been and probably will be projects delayed or scrapped altogether. I must admit that I was a bit disappointed on hearing the news (if it's true). While I'm not obsessed with Panera or anything, I quite enjoy it once in a while. But I will say that the U.S. versions have been better than the one I tried here in Richmond Hill.

      I have no news on this but with the economy the way it is, there's a lot of stuff that's being scrubbed or put on hold.
      We're getting a Best Buy here and they're advertising a Summer 2010 opening. The stores on either side of them are open.
      I guess if you're big enough, you can do stuff like this.

        Is this where Marc McEwan's grocery store is supposed to be? Any news on that?

          No, I don't think so. The one I'm talking about is in Aurora.
