Lit­tle sym­pa­thy for reader who com­plained of Dhs1 rise in soup price

7 Days in Dubai - - CLASSIFIEDS -

“I’m ab­so­lutely hor­ri­fied. The nerve of that restau­rant to in­crease by 1 Dirham !!! and in a food court too where rental rates have risen by 1520% over the last year…? Don’t they un­der­stand YOU NEED YOUR SOUP AT THE SAME PRICE?!?!? Oh by the way … Soup in a food court restau­rant isn’t clas­si­fied as one of the ‘ba­sic food items’ and is not sub­ject to a ‘Ra­madan price freeze’. Hope that helps.”


“It’s 1 dirham dude! I think you’ll sur­vive think of the poor guy that clears your mess in the food court he needs a pay check and it’s gotta come from some­where.”


“I no­ticed the same at the su­per­mar­ket - rather than low­er­ing sta­bil­is­ing prices of fruits and veg­eta­bles - it has spiked greatly! Toma­toes / Or­anges sell­ing at 2.5 - 3 have moved to 4.5 - 5! Like­wise many other fruit and veg­etable items as well. I don’t want to be un­fair by ask­ing mar­kets to lower prices and in­cur losses but it can be sta­bilised to what it was rather than gen­er­at­ing prof­its just be­cause the in­take be­comes more dur­ing Ra­madan!!”
