Tim Hortons to open in Sparwood

A Tim Hortons is being built in Sparwood this year.

A Tim Hortons is being built in Sparwood this year and on Thursday, July 16 District of Sparwood Mayor Cal McDougall, franchise owner Mark Nelson and representatives from Schickedanz West were on site for the official breaking group ceremony.

The restaurant is being built on the corner of Highway 3 and Highway 43 — a location Nelson said will attract passersby and locals alike.

“It will be very busy with Elkford close by and the mine and the local residents, and I think it’s about time that Sparwood has a local Tim Hortons,” Nelson said.

McDougall reiterated Nelson’s remarks, stating, “It’s good news for our community.”

The hope is that this Tim Hortons will be open to the public on a 24-hour basis, Nelson said, adding that the 24-hour schedule will benefit, “a lot of the shift [workers] that will be passing through early in the morning and late and night.”

The franchise owner currently operates the Fort McCloud, Blairmore and Pincher Creek Tim Hortons restaurants.

Nelson said that the tentative opening date is the end of November, 2015.
