Fan-friendly pricing options will remain on the menu at GFL Memorial Gardens.
It was last year when Sault Ste Marie city council gave the go-ahead to the administration to examine implementing fan-friendly pricing. Their goal was striking a balance between keeping fans happy while allowing the concession stands to make a profit.
The new pricing model applied to fan-favourites, such as popcorn, hot dogs, and fries – with $5 beers on offer at select concessions. While fan-friendly pricing had a nominal impact on overall food sales, city staff found that it would provide a valuable sales opportunity to augment existing offerings.
Council agreed with the administration and passed a motion allowing “Fan-Friendly Pricing Options” to become a permanent product offering at GFL Memorial Gardens.
