Another Maine Tim Hortons Location Closes Permanently
It just got a little more difficult to get an iced cappuccino, a box of Tim Bits, or a sour cream donut in Maine.
Yes, Maine has lost another Tim Hortons location.
According to an article in the KJ, Thursday, February 1, was the last day of operations for the Tim Hortons location in Clinton, Maine.
A sign on the door of the business reads:
Effective February 1st, we will be closing the Clinton Maine Tim Hortons. We would like to thank our loyal customers for their patronage over the last 8 years, and apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
The note goes on to suggest that people can get their Tim Hortons coffee and donuts at the Bangor and Brewer locations of the Canadian-owned coffee shop chains.
The Clinton location, which has been around for about eight years, is located inside the Tradewinds Market located on Hinckley Road.
The article explains that there was almost no warning that the businesses was going to be closing. According to the article, the location's 10 employees were notified of the impending closure on Saturday. This has left many of them scrambling to find new employment.
We hope they all manage to find new employment quickly.
Over the last few years, we have seen the chain close down a bunch of locations in Maine. For example, Waterville's location closed in 2017. Seven other locations, including the Skowhegan store, closed in 2013.
The remaining locations in Maine include Bangor, Brewer, Caribou, Houlton, Presque Isle, and Madawaska
The heritage Canadian chain was created in 1964 by hockey player Tim Horton and Jim Charade. The first location was in Hamilton, Ontario.
While the Canada-based company may have not had the greatest success in Maine, there are still many locations in the United States. New York, Pennsylvania, and Michigan have dozens of them, Erie, Pennsylvania, for example has about six of the stores.
