Tuesday-- $3.59 for 2 pieces of dark

Thursday-- $5.49 for 3 pieces of dark

Since it's Tuesday, I may grab 10 to 12 pieces for tonight's Raptors game if I don't watch it at a bar with friends. Smiling Face With Sunglasses
Why is the 2pc Tuesday deal cheaper than the 3 pc on Thursday?

Because it is tradition in the chicken business that Tuesday is the cheapest day to buy chicken.
Thank places like KFC. lol

On Tuesdays you get 2 pieces of chicken where as on Thursday you get 3 pieces. One more than on Tuesday.
A life spent making mistakes is not only more memorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.

1) It's freaking $0.10
2) I'll pay the Thursday $0.10 tax so I can have cheap chicken 2 days a week.

I was responding to this:

So no, that's not why, or it would be ten cents less.

Which leads us back to the original question:

The correct answer is:

if it's 2pc then 1 drum and 1 thigh. If 3pc might be worth it if is 2 thigh 1 drum. Let's get Playnice to find out for us!

Maybe he can also weigh the chicken pieces on Tuesday vs Thursday to see what the price difference really is.

I actually wonder if they (as in anyone not just KFC) orders smaller chickens for sale days.
I know some wing places do it (especially on the extreme low end) because it's not feasible selling what's normally a $0.30 (cost) wing for $0.10.

Last week I noticed this location has raised it's prices on the menu, so I will frequent this place less often now. LOL

Here's the new prices for Tuesday and Thursday.

Tuesday-- $3.79 2 pcs dark

Thursday-- $5.99 3 pcs dark


Next time I'm at the St. Clair/Christie location, I'm gonna see if they raised their prices too. Could be every location? This price hike is a huge one, especially for Thursday!

Still wonder if the 33 Harbour Sq downtown store will ever open? It was originally mentioned in Post #103.

Regardless, I saw this other thread below and learned that a huge Church's Chicken restaurant is opening tomorrow at 3003 Danforth Avenue. Main intersection is Victoria Park and Danforth.
