Tim Hortons is getting set to officially unveil its newly redesigned University Avenue location in Charlottetown which has received a fresh new look.

The restaurant, located at 435 University Avenue, will celebrate the occasion on Tuesday, Jan. 14 from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. with a ribbon cutting, cake, sampling and prize draws.

New and renovated Tim Hortons restaurants across the chain this year will incorporate the company’s new interior and exterior look and design which was introduced earlier last year.

Guests of the new Tim Hortons can expect more comfortable booth seating, warm pendant lighting and interior colour scheme, new wooden bakery displays, television and fire place. On the outside, the new location incorporates warmer natural materials such as stone, as well as gooseneck lighting and colourful awnings.

“We are thrilled to bring a fresh look to this location in Charlottetown and excited for our guests to experience the new Tim Hortons look,” said Danny Murphy, Tim Hortons Restaurant Owner.

Murphy, who also owns other Tim Hortons locations in Prince Edward Island, says that this restaurant will be open 24 hours and will feature a full menu including all of Tim Hortons products.

    I guess those who are complaining about garbage and line up at Tim Horton's have never been to another Tim's in other provinces. PEI has probalby the cleaniest of all of them to be honest. As far as getting orders wrong. are they any different from macdonald's, wendy's, burger king or anywhere else? I think not. People make mistakes. I live in Newfoundland and customer service and being clean is a thing of the past here. I only wish our retail outlets were run as well and just aas clean as Danny Murphy's.

    One of my least favorite Tim's on the Island. The hot chocolate machine is always empty in the evenings, but doesn't stop them from selling you dirty and milky water. And the drive thru is either a mess to get through, between the snow and slush or garbage dumped out the windows. I also agree the blocking of the street is a serious issue and needs to be policed. Especially at the Allen Street location and the round about.

    Jealousy is an evil mistress to which all you clowns attacking Danny Murphy and Tim Hortons should pay heed. Your envy of the Murphy family is beyond logical belief. Try the yellow pages for some good mental help.

      The garbage and mess around Tim Hortons is a true story and not a big surprise when you have a monopoly ownership. Worse still with complacency and who cares about the customer attitude from the top down they just figure you don't have a choice. Getting tired of Tim Hortons anyway the last few years is nothing really special and I'm not OCD so maybe it's harder for other lame brains.

    Cb Kind of curious if your business has a bike stand where I can lock up my bike?

    Yay! They fixed the drive-thru! Oh wait, no they didn't. Cars will still be blocking Nassau Street when it is busy.

    Now if they would try to get orders right instead of trying to sell you something you didn't ask for in the first place.

    I stopped in at a Tims to get a coffee and asked where I could lock up my bike being that it is quite expensive. I was told there was no place to lock up and the manager said the owner would call me about it Well of course no phone call from Danny Murphy. I guess he is happy as long as cars are idling all day in the drive thru

    How much do I have to pay to have my business advertised when I do a renovation? Let me know, thanks.

      That's funny, because I seem to recall the following restaurants also being mentioned in a Guardian story after a renovation: Waters Edge, Subway, Haddad's, Merchant Man, Mavor's, The Factory, Olde Triangle...but, don't let reality interrupt your fantasy.
