Chicken Slice Finds Ingenious Way To “Rate” Customers, Offers Massive 70% Discount For Forex
Packers International’s fast food brand Chicken Slice has seemingly found an ingenious way to work around the government’s regulations prohibiting charging in foreign currency.
Instead of charging in foreign currency the fast food group is simply offering a massive discount of up to 70 percent for customers who pay in foreign currency. Since the United States Dollar is currently trading at between 3-4 Bond Notes/RTGS for every 1 USD, the discount would translate to more or less the actual price in United States Dollars.
The move may be ingenious as the authorities have promised to crack down on businesses which are charging solely in foreign currency or using multi-tier pricing. President Emmerson Mnangagwa threatened to revoke the licences of all the pharmacies which are charging in United States Dollars.
In announcing the discounts on social media, Chicken Slice said
you can still buy in Bond, or using Ecocash and Swipe, it is not mandatory for everyone to purchase in USD, if you do not have US, you can still enjoy your slice using the other currencies and mediums of payment, however if you want to purchase in USD then there is a discount you will get. For example, the 2 Slicer is costing $USD3.
There is still no problem if you still buy the same 2 Slicer for $6.50 using Bond, or Swipe or Ecocash.
Unsurprisingly, the move was met with mixed feelings by Zimbabweans who took to social media to respond to the announcement.
