The New York Post reports:
Mayor Bill de Blasio got hot and crusty Wednesday over a Post report about a Domino’s pizzeria in Midtown that sold pies for $30 apiece to penned-in New Year’s Eve revelers in Times Square.
Multiple commenters also pointed the left-leaning pol to the basic laws of economics, with Matthew Baden tweeting: “How is this different to a million other things? Airlines, Uber, property. It’s called supply and demand.”
Others noted that many city pizzerias charge $4 a slice — which works out to $32 for a pie — and that restaurants regularly raise their rates on New Year’s Eve.
Jacking up your prices on people trying to celebrate the holidays? Classy, @dominos.
To the thousands who came to Times Square last night to ring in 2020, I’m sorry this corporate chain exploited you — stick it to them by patronizing one of our fantastic LOCAL pizzerias. pic.twitter.com/rO6I9oYIku
