Popular Cafe Closing Its Doors For Good At Louis Joliet Mall

The Panera Bread at the Louis Joliet Mall will be closing this week. A sign on the door reads, “This is a difficult time for all of us, and we regret to inform you that Tuesday, August 30 will be this cafe’s last day of business.” Another sign reads that they are short staffed and were doing only online orders.

The Joliet area has two other Panera Bread locations. In Joliet, at 2400 W. Jefferson Street and other in Plainfield at Route 59 and Caton Farm Road.
