I am sick of all the price increases over the last 2 months!
Second Cup is raising their prices. Guess what Second Cup? I'm DONE going for coffee at your locations. McDonald's has a great coffee for much less. Or I will start brewing my coffee at home.
One of my favorite restaurants in Edmonton just raised their prices by 20%. Guess what? I will be taking a break from that restaurant now.
The Edmonton LRT sytem is raising prices again too! In the last year a ticket has gone from $2.80 to $3.20.
Everywhere I look prices are going up... yet Alberta is about to cut and slash jobs to save themselves from a 6 billion dollar a year shortfall.
So, we have rising prices all over the place here in Alberta and we are soon to see mega job losses in the government sector which will spill over to the private sector as well.
I run my own business... and when business gets slow and money gets tight I drop my prices! Increasing prices in a faultering economy is really stupid.
Businesses think that by raising prices they can make up for lost sales.
In the end it doesn't even matter...

Operating cost rise so consumer prices rise.

The one major fact behind rising cost is how the energy market is being manipulated.

Trucks used to bring almost everything to the door for consumer end product aquisition.

Diesel has sky rocketed and that added cost was put on shippers to distributors to the end product distribution point.

Gas used to be higher than diesel but not no more. Diesel is more costly even though it is the by-product of cracking gasoline. Here in the states gas is at $3.47.9 and diesel runs about 30 to 50 cent higher per gallon.

Canada its a little higher so for a truck to transport finished goods at 7 miles to the gallon when diesel cost $4 bucks or more a gallon, that cost to consumer goes up real quick.

Fill a trucks 200 gallon tank at 4 bucks when a few years ago it was more like 2 bucks and you will see.

That's what you do. Stop going there but you have to tell the manager or owner why you're taking your business elsewhere

E.g. We have a McDonald's right next door to Wendy's. Their $1 menu is 1/2 the size of McDonald's, so McDonald's drive thru line is backed up and Wendy's is empty

Wendy's cut the sizes down of their burgers and chili, so go next door.

Will they ever learn?

Even easier to make and clean than a french press. Damn good stuff!

When I was coming up and my parents were saving to build a house, we used to have chili every Friday night because it was cheap to make.

I just bought the meat, beans and tomatoes and slow cooker spice mix $18 with tax. Chili isn't cheap anymore.

The sad thing about all of this is that the smaller businesses, mom and pops, cannot absorb inflation and higher costs of goods like bigger companies.

There are very few options to small businesses - pay cuts (including the owners themselves), hour cuts, raising prices or laying off employees.

In America the cost to comply with EPA burdens and Obamacare has added so much expense, many businesses are closing up shop altogether.

It's only going to get worse. You don't ADD costs and taxes in a failing economy unless you really want to sink the free market.

Conditions for business does really suck more and more every day. Still there is another side to this coin...

Raising quality. I look for quality in goods and services now, more than ever. Paying extra for quality is usually worth it in the long run. I'd like to see more mom & pop shops that focus on doing things better than the big-box boys. Everyone has been too brainwashed into thinking less expensive is best.
