Ladies and gentlemen, this is not a drill, Tim Hortons is about to raise its prices.

Effective August 2, some of the restaurant chain’s hot beverages and breakfast items will be more expensive.

You may have spotted notes beside cash registers making customers aware of the increase, which the restaurant claims are due to ‘rising operational costs’.

The company has not raised prices in a number of years, but, perhaps not surprisingly, people still aren’t happy about it. In 21st Century fashion, many are taking to Twitter to express that displeasure.

As of now, Tim Hortons has yet to identify exactly which of its menu items will see a price hike, we’ll all just have to wait and see the menu as of August 2.
