O’FALLON, Ill. — The grand opening of Illinois’ first Tim Hortons Cafe & Bake Shop has been delayed until Friday, Aug. 12, because of wet weather. The opening originally was set for Wednesday but pushed to two days later.
Those who present their current O’Fallon Township High School ID card can receive a free, Panther-themed blue-and-gold donut through Friday, Aug. 19. A previously planned O’Fallon Township High School pep rally at the store has been cancelled.
In honor of nearby Scott Air Force Base, custom Tim Hortons coffee mugs sporting a camouflage pattern will be given to the first 250 people who visit the store and present base identification. Those mugs will be refilled for free with any purchase through August 2017.
Winners of a social media contest will have their chance in a “dough machine,” where they can win cash prizes, Tim Hortons gift cards and more.
The store will open at 5 a.m. Opening festivities will take place from 9 to 11 a.m., with a 10 a.m. ribbon cutting with elected officials, chamber members and Tim Hortons executives.
The store is located at 450 Regency Park Drive, just off Interstate 64 and north Green Mount Road in O’Fallon, Ill.
