Today i went to my local Pizza Place , no longer called a Pizza Parlor (that’s dating me ,as an old timer) to have a slice , well I had 2 slices and a small soda and the fair was $8.00 . Granted I had one of the slices with meatballs on it and one plain , but $8 bucks… Outrageous ! For that price I could have had a complete Chinese lunch at a take out or sit in restaurant. I know the price of Flour is high and rents are very steep ,but to charge that much for what I had is over the top to say the least and the price of a whole pie is $16.00 .
In the 1950’s a slice was 15 cents and a small pie was 75 cents and a large one was a dollar ..well times have changed over the years .and that’s an under statement!!
When I was growing up there wasn’t a man who could carry $16.00 worth of Pizza, that would be 16 pies by yesteryear’s standards/end
