Tim Hortons in Maplewood (2721 S Big Bend Boulevard) closed its doors for good at 2 p.m. on Saturday.
Employees said they’ve known about the closing for about a week, but couldn’t say why. One said she plans to work at Raising Cane’s, across the street. Another said he has some options, including Raising Cane’s.
The Maplewood Tim Hortons was the first St. Louis location, opening in June 2015.
The fast food operator is facing a $850-million class-action lawsuit by franchisees to address their grievances with parent company Restaurant Brands International Inc., the Financial Post reported.
