Woo-hoo! Tim Hortons in NYC!!!

Tims Hortons is opening in NYC on Monday. I love Tim Hortons doughnuts, baked goods and sandwiches. I had them in the Buffalo area of NY and fell in love with them. They are so much better than Dunkin Donuts or Krispy Kreme. I hope this means that some stores will soon be popping up around Long Island. Even though I am not legally allowed to cross the border and go in to Canada I do love them for two things, Hockey and TIm Hortons. My wife works in the city and gos to Penn Station (where they are opening an outlet on Monday) everyday so I can get her to pick me up some, I cant wait !

Jul 09, 2009 (SmarTrend(R) News Watch via COMTEX) ----Tim Hortons Inc (NYSE:THI), a coffee and donut chain, will open 13 locations in New York City on Monday in former Dunkin' Donuts stores, according to a New York Times report. The Riese Organization is ending its affiliation with Dunkin' and welcoming in the Canadian chain named after a late great hockey player. Tim Hortons now has over 3,400 locations, 500 in the United States. Dunkin' Dunuts on the other hand has more than 500 locations in the New York City area alone. The Times cited CEO of Riese Dennis Riese as saying, "Dunkin' is a great concept for a customer and a consumer," but added, "I can't make money with them."
