2 years ago we ordered Mandarin takeout on Canada Day and totally forgot about this deal. I went to pick it up and the amount of people waiting was insane. Luckily, they were smart and saved some parking at the front for takeout customers, otherwise I'd be parking down the street. To save $20 or whatever it is, I would not waste that much time waiting around.

To answer your question, please sit down and enjoy reading some Dollarama threads here where people “brag” about driving to 14 different Dollarama locations to finally snag that elusive $4 “hot deal” item...
I do it all the time, when i do grocery, i like to visit them all to save 50¢, when i come back home i put 25$ gas.

Half price or even 25% off would create enough lineups already. This is just a marketing publicity trick...
I think your wrong, i am sure the owner just like to give food away in addition paying staff to give free food. They are like that, very generous peoples.

For the life of me I will never understand people who camp out or wait for hours to save a few $.

I like that the Poster was created with Adobe InDesign, yet still looks like crap!
True. However, spending money on advertising for a free psycho circus event wouldn't be prudent. Sort of like a prison advertising, "Yes! We're open."

Here’s a better idea:

Sit ur ass in ur car driving around uber for 1 hour and get paid enough to go to a better buffet than mandarin.

Or

Doing live cam of your self in your bed and make more than enough...

The people that wait in line for this are the same people who wait 45 minutes to save $5 on gas.

I personally hate buffets because of those that go to toilette, do their things and come back eating without washing their hands.

I can't imagine what kind of stuff staying on their hands and shared with everyone in the buffet

Meanwhile...

I am the guy with the kinda pink/orange shirt and brown t-shirt underneath.

My wife, the beautiful girl with green shirt, was there before me because i had to find a parking to park our cadillac escalade 2020
A couple who stands in line with their arms crossed together stays together. Now that's family bonding and I would certainly count that as spending time together, should she ever say that we don't spend any time together. And as a bonus you have proof - major score!

Just looking at those video on youtube ... it's kinda sad people willing to wait long hours just to eat a free meal... this ain't a 3rd world country.

Not just that, people that spend their time on this site looking for cheap stuff and criticizing others that might enjoy the social aspect of lining up for a free meal. I take more issue with people spending their whole day driving to the US just to save a few dollars while hurting the Canadian businesses.

Better if Mandarin donated it to charity instead.

The worst of humanity will be on full display.
