What a shock!
Went to pick up a copy of the Sunday Columbus Dispatch
Normally a two buck purchase. Clerk, “Five dollars, please” .
I started to laugh until a firm stare gave me different thoughts.
She appeared new so I asked her to recheck the price with
the manager. She was right according to the mgr who indicated they had received a memo from the Dispatch that due to
“Rising Costs” the increase was necessary. I checked another
store. Five bucks!
Trying to reason a 150 % jump I wondered if this might be a trial
ballon to see how it went? After all, they could lose half their
customers, which they know ain’t happening, and still come
out ahead of where they were! .???
We’ll see what appens in the future.
Is the economy that good?
