Houston Market Quietly Ups Prices


Dear Houston Market,

Though we may have plenty of Dining Dollar$ and PennCa$h at the beginning of this semester ($emester?), paying an extra dollar for every pasta toss or salad will add up. It's pretty low to expect us to cope with new eating habits along with new classes and other stresses, like fitting those salad boxes into your recycling bins. And even worse, you switched costs for salads and pasta by precisely 99 cents, from $5.50 to $6.49. What percent is that? Don't answer that, Housty, we're not listening.

Concerned but with love, UTB
