Coffee’s on at renovated Tim Hortons Store One

Extensive renovations have finished at the first ever Tim Hortons doughnut shop, which has been at the corner of Ottawa and Dunsmure in Hamilton for 50 years.

“Store One” re-opened quietly this weekend and it has been jammed ever since with customers who want a jolt of the past with their java.

The unassuming little re-purposed garage is gone leaving no doubt that this corner of Ottawa Street North is home to the original donut shop opened by a hockey player and a police officer.

Customers walk in to a full service store, with some retro design touches. Up the stairs you’ll find a little corner that looks just like it did 50 years ago, including the original uniform, and treats that were on the menu back then.

You can also take a stroll down memory lane.

Sandy Vanrijn has spent 24 years working at Tim Hortons and curated the new museum portion of the store.

The grand opening celebration is set for January 7.
