Tim Hortons will open in Dundee on Thursday. The store, located at 107 Cabela Blvd. across the lot from the Marathon gas station, will operate 24 hours starting at 6 a.m., said owner Mike Abdallah. Mr. Abdallah’s family are part owners of the plaza the Tim Hortons is located in and also own the Marathon and Jerky outlet in the same lot. When the storefront in the plaza opened, Mr. Abdallah, along with his brother Nasser, asked the franchise if they could open the restaurant.
