Such is often the case in commercial real estate, once a development lands a major new tenant, more new businesses follow. And it's looking like that's the case behind a recently flurry of business activity at the Prairie Shopping Center, corner of US 95 & Prairie Ave. in Hayden.
That major new tenant will be a new Panera Bread, the second location for the Missouri based chain in the Inland Northwest .It is already under construction on a pad site the formerly housed a Burger King until just recently. The Burger King was demolished and construction work began promptly on the Panera Bread. There is no set opening date for the new Hayden Panera Bread but it will likely be in either August or September and will feature both dine in and a drive through, similar to the one already open on E. Indiana in Spokane Valley.
And, here's what is all coming soon , likely in response to the new Panera Bread-
Beau Monde Exchange
Beau Monde Exchange is an high end second hand women's clothing retailer that is moving to the Prairie Shopping Center from the Ironwood Square Shopping Center in Coeur d' Alene. Their Hayden will be their only location and will be basically the same as the store in Coeur d' Alene.
Beau Monde Exchange plans to open for business at the Prairie Shopping Center on June 7th. They will be in space in-between Qdoba and the Walk In Clinic.
1920's Soda Fountain
Local business owner Cheyenne Potter is starting a new soda fountain in the shopping center along with some of her sisters. This new business will launch soon in Suite 105 by Java Hayden and The Local Deli and will be a throw back to the old school soda fountain concept.
The menu will include old fashioned favorites like bull moose, dreamland sundaes and new " foodie " favorites like ghost pepper chocolates, egg creams, sundaes , milkshakes, ice cream cones and the list goes on. 1920's promises to be a unique dessert shop that should have a large following, they plan to make their own ice cream and all the soda's will be from the locally based Tractor Soda Co. which is owned by the owner's dad.
The soda fountain is a work in progress right now but should be open for business sometime around late June.
Junior's Barbeque will be a new fast casual style BBQ restaurant being started by another member of the Potter family, Travis Potter, Jr. who at only 19 plans to launch this exciting new restaurant in suite 85 at the Prairie Shopping Center, this is the same space as Wildcat Pizza and a few other small restaurants.
Customers will be able to customize their order by choosing just about everything from a type of bread, to sides and even picking a meat, all with many choices. Tacos and salads will be available and guest will be able to choose from taking their food to go or staying in with one of 4 truck beds that will be in the restaurant.
Junior's Barbeque will also serve Tractor Soda Co. soda's and organic custard. No mention of an opening date for Junior's but we will be checking up soon.
While the majority of the news is very positive at the Prairie Shopping Center it must be noted that the Hancock Fabrics store, next to Sherwin Williams is following suit with the rest of that chain and will close up shop soon with going out of business sales already underway. No word on who may replace them.
