Two-for-one syndrome cheapens Summit County; nobody else does it

It’s about time someone touched on the two-for-one syndrome in Summit County. Good article, Reid Williams.

With the lagging economy, I personally feel sorry for the restaurant owners and do not blame them for closing and not wanting to deal with the two-for-one war. It seems it’s a smart business decision.

You don’t find Vail, Beaver Creek or Boulder doing two-for-one dinners. Try and find a restaurant in Denver doing two-for-one dinners. What are we trying to do – advertise Summit County as a cheap place to dine? What’s next?

Do you think dentists will give two-for-one fillings, gas stations two-for-one gallons of gas, hairdressers two-for-one haircuts? How about two-for-one pedicures, two-for-one ski rentals, two-for-one night’s lodging? And how about two months rent for the price of one – come on landlords, step up to the plate.

Realtors sell two houses for one commission? Perhaps our employees can work two days and get paid for one. It’s all so ridiculous.

It would be nice to have the restaurants stop discounting and cheapening our county. Actually, the ski areas already top that with the Buddy Passes.

P.S. How about the Summit Daily running two-for-one ads?
