IOWA CITY, Iowa - The Bruegger's Bagels in downtown Iowa City will be re-opening next week. Both the bakery and upstairs apartments burned down during a devastating fire in fall 2011.

Construction workers rebuilt the shop in the same location along Iowa Avenue. Except this spot has a fresh new look.
