Sparwood Tim Hortons celebrates grand opening

The new Tim Hortons in Sparwood held its grand opening last Saturday.

The community of Sparwood was in the spirit of celebration as Tim Hortons held their official grand opening last Saturday. The event sparked much happiness, as customers were surprised with a party theme, free cake and huge giveaways following the official ribbon cutting ceremony.

On hand to help cut the ribbon was Acting Mayor Joe Jarina who offered his congratulations to owners Mark and Rachel Nelson.

“We are so happy to see Tim’s here in Sparwood. There has been talk of this happening for so long, and it is great to see this being the first place developed here on this parcel. Having Tim’s here in Sparwood is a great thing for the community and people really love it. I hear from some people that you aren’t an official Canadian certified town unless you have a Tim Hortons, so now I am glad to say we are,” said Jarina.

Nelson handed out free gift cards throughout the day, for the opportunity to win big. Nelson asked some Sparwood and Tim Hortons trivia to allow those attending the chance to win $50 and $100 gift cards as well as home brewing systems.

“Everything has been going so well since we opened the doors. We really wanted to have this day as more of a customer appreciation day. We are very grateful for all of the community support, as well as the hard work from our local staff. We are really glad to be here and would like to thank everyone for their business,” he said. Sparwood Chamber of Commerce President Marjorie Templin also commented on how businesses have already noticed an increase in traffic through town and spoke of how Tim Hortons was a huge complement in all aspects, to the community.
