A Coffee Chain Has Left This Lansing Spot, What Would You Like to See Instead?
Whenever a business closes its doors for the last time, it's always sad. That's a whole staff of people who are out of a job and one less business for the area to patronize.
Tragically, the last two years have been especially had on businesses, particularly restaurants. In recent months, Lansing and the surrounding area have seen a multitude of places close;
Tim Horton's on Jolly Road in Lansing is Closed
Included in those closures over the last few months is the Tim Horton's location on Jolly Road off of Dunckel in Lansing. This place has been closed for a little while now. And sadly, that corner has seen its share of loss in business in recent times.
The Burger King there closed. However, a Leo's Coney Island is planned for that spot. A Conrad's Wraps was planned for inside the plaza next to Biggby, but those plans were nixed.

This particular Tim Horton's closure wasn't part of some mass set of closings for the chain, it seems it was just this particular location. There are still some locations throughout the greater Lansing area, not to mention plenty throughout Michigan as a whole.

- Lansing's West Side @ 728 S Waverly Rd
