At the time, I asked why this location was closing? The response I got was the franchisee was retiring. I guess nobody wanted to purchase this location as a Tim Horton's.

It was also interesting that the Sampan Express opened up, while the Sampan Restaurant closed nearby. I'm told they had a few of their cooks move over to their new location. Not sure if it is a change of ownership though.

I take it that the Panago is closed during the lunch hour as they feel they wouldn't have enough business after all the students, and perhaps office employees go back to work.

Charming...

 


As many as 21 locations have been closed; more are planned for New England.

 

Tim Hortons, the Canadian coffee and doughnut chain that was acquired by Burger King last year, has abruptly closed over 20 locations in the Northeast — in Maine, New York City, and upstate New York — without warning. Not only were staff not given notice, but Consumerist reports that customers dining inside the restaurants were told to leave as employees were turning the lights out for the final time in the middle of the day.

 

The shutters happened this past Wednesday and Thursday, with multiple reports saying store managers and employees found out the day of the closure. Some managers were told the night before. "Went home and received a phone call that it was it. There is no work tomorrow. So I had to go on and call all of my employees and tell them that don't show up to work tomorrow. That this is it," Pamela Levison, a Tim Hortons store manager, told TWCNews.

I remember once coming across the phrase "the camel's back straw" in a publication. "The shutters happened . . ." now joins it as some seriously dumb writing.

Tim Hortons to open Sooke location

http://victoria.citi...sooke-location/

 

Tim Hortons lovers will be able to get their fix in Sooke this fall according to a development proposal revealed by the T'sou-ke First Nation.

 

"The T’Sou-ke First Nation has entered into a preliminary business arrangement with Tim Hortons, Esso and On the Run Convenience to pursue the construction of a franchise restaurant and gas station," said T’Sou-ke Administrator Michelle Thut. [Full article]

I went to a tim horton's once in the vancouver airport.  Their breakfast muffin wasn't as horrible as I expected.  True story.

I could never see the logic of them closing that store, as it was always busy.
Now if they would bring back the garlic toast that used to come with a bowl of chili.


I'm a bit late to the show here, but I'd heard the closure of the previous Borden location was due to a geography-based disagreement between the people behind Saanich's Timmies and West Shore's Timmies. I cannot remember which franchisee won out, but it's a different owner than the previous location. Tims politics I guess.

The new Borden one is probably the most comfortable in that general area to actually sit down and stay a while.

It did not. The last I heard of it, the band is waiting on government funds to get the project started.

Why government funds?

I heard a rumour that there are plans to build a Tim Hortons on the corner of Bench Rd and Trans Canada Hwy, just south of Duncan, where the old Galaxy Nightclub once stood.

Anyone else hear anything similar?

Oh yeah, that'd be a great location. Haven't anything about that just yet, though.

That would be a very odd place out there in the midst of nothing except a Coop gas station that closes at 9pm. Tims are usually located in areas that people are located in, not on a lonely stretchs of highway with no other life visible.

Maybe it's a new Esso location with Timmy's on the run inside.

Across most of northern ontario the Timmies are located out on the highway, bundled with a Wendy's and 1/2 of the time not located anywhere near the town centre.

 

Probably responsible for more reduced accidents than any safety measures taken along the route.

^Except they will be bundled with a Burger King or Popeyes Chicken now.
