Sign in window: Yes, Tiny’s is open, no thanks to the Nfld News

Tiny's in downtown Northfield sign in window of Tiny's
I noticed yesterday that proprietor Tim Sellers has a sign in the window of Tiny’s that reads:

Yes, Tiny’s is open

Tues-Sat 9:30 to 5:00

No thanks to the Nfld News

The Northfield News ran an article back in April titled: Locals try to save a Northfield landmark.

A longtime downtown business is expected to close in the coming months. Tiny’s Hot Dogs at 321 Division St. is set for a sheriff’s sale June 3, according to a legal notice published last week. Owner Timothy Sellers has until Dec. 3 to rework his mortgage or come up with the necessary funds to cover the debt. Sellers declined to comment, but support of the longtime Northfield shop has quickly grown.

    OK, I’ll bite…why is Tiny’s staying open “No thanks to Nfld News”?

      Phil, I’m not sure but I’m guessing that since the article ran, people assumed he was closing soon and therefore his business has dropped off.

      I’m surprised. People I knew actually started going because they thought they would never be able to get Tiny’s hotdogs again!

        Too bad they haven’t been doing so for the past 5 years, huh! : (

        He IS closing soon, though… not sure exactly when. Better get your dogs while they last.

    Nit-picky comment here… Tim’s last name is “Sellers” rather than “Sellars”. He’s my uncle… : )

  3. Only one thing that bothers me. Our family can only patronize this establishment on Saturdays.

    If he was to perhaps staying open until 6 PM, the family could stop in for dinner. Perhaps going to a 10 to 6 schedule might help a bit with evening sales?

      I can respond to the extended hours comment since Tim is my dad. Days get to be very very long when you own a restaurant and although my dad has other employees….it costs A LOT to pay staff. I also know this because of working at The Ole Cafe. Extended hours are not possible when for the most part, Tiny’s is a one man show.

      • I completely understand. I was wondering the same amount of hours could be done, but just simply shift them. Does he have to be open at 9:30 to complete prep for the lunch rush?
