BECKLEY (WVVA) - A swarm of eager patrons welcomed Beckley's newest eatery as it opened its doors for the first time Tuesday.

Panera Bread is opening its tenth West Virginia operation off Eisenhower Drive in the new Eisenhower Commons center off Route 19 in Beckley.

In celebration of the grand opening, Panera Bread free gifts to its first customers after the doors opened at 6 a.m. Tuesday.

On Wednesday, those who purchase a 'You-Pick-Two' will receive a $5 Panera Bread gift card for your next visit.
