SM Markets announce price hike for turon and netizens are shookt
Its September 1 and if many netizens are already relishing the start of the Christmas season, there are those that are grinding their teeth because of a recent announcement made by SM Markets that they will be raising the price of their turon with langka to P20.
“Thank you for supporting SM Markets’ Turon with Langka all these years. For just a few more pesos, you can still enjoy the same turon goodness you’ve come to know. Thank you for your continued patronage,” they announced on their Facebook page.
The announcement however, triggered the beast mode of loyal fans of their affordable merienda option.
“yung iba pa-piso piso lang ang increase, eto straight lima agad!” one netizen commented.
“Syempre magpapayaman pa sila, dapat gnawa nyo ng 40 nahya pa kayo eh hahaha,” another replied.
“Bwahahaha. Price increase = less customers– I think,” another Facebook user deduced.
“payaman ng payaman na nga kayo eh, tataas nyo turon? kamkamin nyo na lang pilipinas nahiya pa kayo eh!” an angry tirade read.
“You actually sold 25 million turons last 2016. That’s 375 Million in turon sales alone. Pwede ng pampatayo ng isang maliit na mall. Greedy much?,” another netizen called out.
Some commenters said that patrons should be understanding because the rising cost of goods could be causing the price hike. However, those who expressed this opinion seemed to be in the minority as many were shocked by rise from P15 to P20. (ANGEL ONG)
