My XL Hot Chocolate went from $1.56 to $1.60. Someone must pay for the extra 4¢!

Tim Horton's isn't in business to make friends. They exist to profit from their well-established monopoly over police enforcement and people who want some fast food that won't kill them in 10 years. They don't really have competitors, plus their food quality is pretty good, so raising the price seems fair. Rule of thumb for inflation is 4% every year so it's gotta happen eventually.

wtf they raised prices again? That's like twice in four years!!! Not normal.

I thought my double-double this morning was the same price though...I haven't noticed, but maybe it's just that one item.

And free WiFi? Since when did Timmy's Hos have free WiFi?

t&t jacked up their prices too.

that's why i wait till 6-7 and then buy my food from them.

that's probably the best thing about T&T. too bad you don't see super store or safeway doing that too
