As part of continued construction behind Shanghai's IAPM Mall, a number of shops along Nanchang Lu have been boarding up. This morning, Spread the Bagel was the latest to be shut, though shops along the street have been gradually closing over the past few weeks.
We're told Spread the Bagel will be on temporary hiatus until the Nanchang Lu improvements are complete. In the meantime you can get your STB bagel fix via online delivery and their wholesale partners.
Similar developments have been happening in other neighborhoods around Xuhui — just a couple of weeks ago, a few small shops on Wulumuqi Lu received similar treatment. Late last month, multiple shops suddently closed, with their doors cemented up. A few weeks prior, several venues across the street closed, including Little Catch, Brother's Kebab and Slurp!
