Every single staff member who worked at Panera Bread’s now-closed Cherry Creek location has relocated to the new Halsted Street restaurant, which opened Wednesday. Familiar faces behind the register might be the only consolation for local residents decrying closure of the older store, which had been at its Governors Highway location for at least 15 years. 

Customers sad to see Panera closing

The usual vibe at the Panera Bread in Cherry Creek Plaza was missing Sunday as staff counted down the hours before the store closed at 4 p.m.
 
“I’ve been coming here every day the last four or five years. I think it’s terrible,” said Martin McHale of Homewood who sat by the fireplace reading a newspaper. “They said they talked to the mayor and they weren’t going to close here. I really hate to see it close.”
