Barb McKenna reports from the canine frontier [RealAudio] about Tim Hortons’ new policy of charging 18 cents (including GST) for Tim-Bits for dogs. They used to be free.
Let’s say that Tim’s gives away 100,000 Tim-Bits a year on PEI (that seems like a lot, but who knows) and the cost of making a Tim-Bit is, say, 5 cents. That means that $10,000 of lost profit over the course of a year.
That seems like an awfully cheap way to engender the goodwill of dog-owning Islanders.
