Ess-A-Bagel Price Hike

Bob W | Feb 20, 2008 10:21 AM

A couple weeks ago my brother Lurker W. went into Ess-A for his usual Sunday bagel and was shocked -- shocked! -- to find they had raised their per-bagel price to $1. He stormed out and went to David's for a flagel.

His boycott lasted another week but he caved and is now back at Ess-A.

Anyone else shocked to pay $1 for a bagel? Since Ess-A's are as big as a small child's head, $1 really doesn't seem too outrageous. My earliest bagel memories from Providence are of paying $.08 for bagels, circa 1968, that were probably one-third the size of an Ess-A bagel by weight.
