BEHIND THE SCENES: McDonald's is coming to town, and not everyone is lovin' it

ThoroldToday reporter Bernard Lansbergen talks about the new fast-food joint slated for downtown

A new McDonald's location set to open in the heart of Thorold has triggered a mix of reactions from local residents and business owners. The fast-food chain announced plans to build a new restaurant at the corner of Pine St. S and Sullivan Ave.

Some locals have welcomed the news, citing the convenience of having a well-known brand within walking distance. But others have expressed concern that the presence of a large chain restaurant could harm small businesses in the area.
