TORONTO, May 15, 2014 /CNW/ - 


    WHAT:    In celebration of its 50th anniversary, Tim Hortons has
            performed the ultimate #ThrowbackThursday, by transforming
            Yonge-Dundas Square into a scene from 1964, complete with a
            retro replica of "Store No. 1", Tim Hortons' first restaurant.
            The scene will be set with record and barber shop store front
            flats, telephone booths, parking meters, lamp posts, a grassy
            area with picnic benches, vintage cars, including a 1962 pink
            Cadillac, and actors and actresses dressed in swinging '60s
            garb.
            Guests will enjoy complimentary coffee and limited edition
            Birthday Cake Donuts, served by staff in vintage uniforms, as
            well as a concert by Canadian jazz-pop singer, Nikki Yanofsky.
            As a nod to Tim Horton's hockey roots, guests can look forward
            to appearances from Toronto Maple Leaf alumni, Tim Horton and
