Tim Hortons’ parent Restaurant Brands International Inc. On Thursday reported that the coffee chain’s comparable sales are now showing declines of around 25 per cent, an improvement on the early days of the pandemic.The focus on sales is common for major retail chains since the metric excludes newly opened stores to make for a clearer year over year comparison. Tim Hortons comparable sales were already in decline in recent, pre pandemic quarters, but they sank even further in late March, hovering around negative mid forties.RBI chief executive Jos Cil said the improvement was due, in part, to home delivery, which is now offered by 1,100 of the 4,000 Tim Hortons locations in Canada, up from 250 locations at the beginning of March.Speaking to the Bernstein Strategic Decisions Conference on Thursday, Cil boasted that the growth has made Tim Hortons one of the most widely available restaurant chains for home delivery in Canada.

The problem is that the plot spirals into a salacious soap opera, complete with a villainous spurned virgin, an engagement (in high school!), the return of a long lost father, some bisexual rumblings, a rape, a pregnancy, a miscarriage all delivered with a heaping dose of melodrama that precludes any serious discussion of Mercedes’s response to a previous sexual assault. Eighteen year old Lila has constantly struggled to literally and figuratively fit in as the child of Punjabi parents in a culture that worships all things small and white. For much of the narrative, she looks retrospectively at her life from what is a truly dire place in a psychiatric unit.
