By Matthew McCully – It was a combination of factors that led to the closing of the Tim Hortons across from Provigo on Queen Street, according to owner Denis Bourque.
Bourque said a labour shortage, coupled with a decrease in sales following the opening of the new Tims at the top of College and the fact that the Queen Street location, which opened in 2006, was on the verge of needing a major renovation, all played into the decision to close. “It wasn’t a split second decision or an easy one to make,” Bourque said. “None of the employees will lose their jobs,” he insisted.
