Construction of a Tim Hortons coffee shop in Sooke is expected to begin this fall, according to the T’Sou-ke First Nation.
Planned for a lot referred to by locals as the "gravel pit," the eatery – complete with a drive-through – and an accompanying Esso gas station will be situated on T'souke First Nation land in the 6000-block of Sooke Road across from Saseenos Elementary School. The location will mark the popular chain's first franchise west of Langford.
Despite Tim Hortons job postings previously hinting at a fall 2016 opening, the construction schedule was pushed back by several months. A spokesperson for the T'souke First Nation says the coffee shop is now expected to open by early spring.
