Thread: Captain D's raises prices

    Default Captain D's raises prices

    Within the last month my local Captain D's raised prices 29 cents on baked potatoes, corn, and mac & cheese. These are the side items that probably cost you a hidden ~$1 when you buy the dinners. On that assumption, that's a 29% increase, almost 1/3. If you want to say each side item costs $2, which I believe is further from the truth, it's still an increase of 14.5%.

    I can understand an increase in corn, but potatoes? I'm not sure if I should be pissed or worried...

    Burger King here raised the price of a Kid's Meal by about a buck.
    * Enforce Border Security – America should be guarding her own borders and enforcing her own laws instead of policing the world and implementing UN mandates.

    * No Amnesty - The Obama Administration’s endorsement of so-called “Comprehensive Immigration Reform,” granting amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants, will only encourage more law-breaking.

    * Abolish the Welfare State – Taxpayers cannot continue to pay the high costs to sustain this powerful incentive for illegal immigration. As Milton Friedman famously said, you can’t have open borders and a welfare state.

    * End Birthright Citizenship – As long as illegal immigrants know their children born here will be granted U.S. citizenship, we’ll never be able to control our immigration problem.

    Gas dropped 30 cents a gallon today.
    A place to stay, Enough to eat
    Somewhere old heroes shuffle safely down the street
    Where you can speak out loud
    About your doubts and fears
    And what's more no-one ever disappears
    You never hear their standard issue kicking in your door.
    You can relax on both sides of the tracks
    And maniacs don't blow holes in bandsmen by remote control
    And everyone has recourse to the law
    And no one kills the children anymore.

    - Roger Waters

    I've been pleasantly surprised by gas prices as well. Perhaps the spike we had in oil took a while to work it's way to the Captain and soon I can get my baked potato 29 cents cheaper.

    I was looking at the frozen TV dinners the other day and remembered they were 10 for $10 the last time I was at the store.
    Now, they are $1.25 each and there is one less meat ball in them. They used to have 5 and now they have 4.

    Typical - prices go up, quality/quantity goes down. A sure sign the economy is not good (or that people's perception of it is not good)

    wow. up here in maine lobsters off the boats were going for $2.40 a pound. Talked with some fisherman today and they said that might go up to $2.75 a pound today. Its really hurting the fisherman up here with the low costs. I bet if i went to the grocery store though lobsters would still be selling for an arm and leg though.

    Freakin hotdogs are more expensive than lobsters now and for some reason i eat a lot more hotdogs.

    hadn't been to the liquor store in a while. Last weekend I went for a bottle of Crown and I noticed prices on all liquors have gone up a lot.

    Wendies 5 piece nuggets are up to like 1.15 (or 19) from .99. That makes me sad as they are freaking awesome. Gas is below 2.50 though which is freaking amazing compared to just a few months ago though... Seriously even 2.44 still sucks.

    here in Chicago it's just as expensive to shop at the regular grocery stores as it is to shop at Whole Foods. I can get organic stuff (and it tastes waaay better) for nearly the same prices as non-organic at a regular store. Organic butter, sugar, milk, eggs, cereal, flour, etc... prices are evening out.

    I'm also gonna miss the farmer's market here where I can get cheap specialty cheeses from our "cheese guy". I got a big hunk of amazing Parmesan for $4 on Sunday. It's easily 2x that in the grocery store.
