French bakery chain PAUL announced today that it is one month away from opening its first Boston location at Somerville's Assembly Row development. This will apparently come before the previously announced 6,000-square-foot flagship location that is still under construction at One Boston Place in Downtown Crossing.

As previously reported, the bakery, which began in 1889 and now has more than 600 locations worldwide, hopes to open up to a dozen PAUL bakeries in the Boston area by 2016.
