UPDATE: Pekara’s new location will be closed July 23-24 to prepare for its grand opening at 6 a.m. on July 25.
Pekara Bakery and Bistro is having a series of soft openings for its new location at Springfield and Prospect avenues in Champaign.
It is Pekara’s second location, joining its original store on Neil Street in downtown Champaign. According to the store’s Facebook page, Pekara is open through Sunday, July 22, from 8 a.m.-2 p.m. for what it is labeling “soft openings.”
The post also indicated that the store’s regular hours haven’t been determined but opening times are expected to be 6 a.m. regularly.
Pekara revealed last year that it planned to open the additional location at the site of a former convenience store and gas station. The menu is expected to be the same with a few additional highlights.
