IOWA CITY, Iowa - Bruegger's is set to reopen this July in downtown Iowa City. The bagel shop burned down in September 2011.

Last August, Bruegger's announced it would return to its old location along Iowa Ave. The owner had hoped to reopen by early January, but construction delays halted that plan.

The city has already approved plans for the new building, and says construction can start at any time. Bruegger’s will occupy the first floor of a new two-story building in downtown Iowa City. The new building will sit on the same site as the one that burned down. The second floor of the building will house three, one-bedroom apartments.
