Remember my article The Tale of the Chocolate Croissant? Here is more about Big C trying to rob their customers … and failing.
These pictures are worth more than a long explanation
1- the price of the salad bar in every Big C was 19 Baht / 100 grams.
2- one day, someone at Big C though, “let’s pretend that the salad bar was at 45 baht/100 grams and make a promotion at 29 Bath / 100 grams“. That’s a 100% price increase but the bozo customer don’t know!
3- They did it everywhere in Pattaya, not only in Big C extra Pattaya Thai. A good idea must be spread everywhere. Lot of money from travelers who don’t know what was the price before is waiting! Let’s the price go to the Moon!
4- Customers, don’t buy. It is a disaster. They even closed some salad bars in consequence! Actually, they probably lost money.
5- Lesson learned? Today the guy at Big C landed back on Earth with the original price of 19 Baht / 100 grams.
We are not Bozos!

July 2019: Today I eat a superb salad purchased at Big C Extra for 50 baht! Thank you Big C, do not change this price 19 baht / 100 grams, and I come every day!
Update! The salad bar is back at Big C south Pattaya. Lesson learned? At 19 baht/100 gram.
Another Update August 2019: they did it again! Up to 29 Baht / 100 gram, lesson learned? Nah.
