Start of Year = Start of Rising Prices
Written by Bwog Staff
It’s a phenomenon almost as annoying as having to re-enter your SSOL password when you leave it alone for more than 3 minutes: rising prices at campus eateries.
So far, Bwog tipsters and staff have seen price hikes at many campus eateries. Offenders include Ferris Booth, which, in addition to replacing the popular stir fry station with a taco bar, has raised prices at several of their other stations.
At $7, Ferris and 212 sushi, for example, will now set you back more than many supermarkets in the area (M2M sells it for about $4). Cafe 212 has also raised its prices on sandwiches, and they’ve also stopped selling sunflower seeds, which Bwog considers a travesty.
Finally, Butler’s Blue Java has, as our tipster put it, “coffee now priced at Starbucks levels, pastries even higher.” If you’ve heard of other places, on-campus or off-campus, raising (or lowering!) their prices, let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org or in the comments.
