Bread & Milk Available for Sale via Drive-Thru @ McDonald’s

Moved to Forum: Original Link

Maccas will be selling bread and milk starting from tomorrow. Prices will be the same as Woolworths.

I see a couple of benefits in this new initiative -
1) there isn’t a need to meet a minimum spend just to get these items
2) you can just pick them up at the drive through in the comfort of your car.


As reported in the SMH -

Fast-food giant McDonald's will sell bread and milk from Wednesday.

Customers can buy two or three-litre bottles of full cream or skim milk, as well as packs of English muffins and gourmet bread rolls, from drive-through windows or as takeaway from stores, while dining rooms are closed.

“As part of our commitment to continue to support local communities during these uncertain times, we will now offer customers another way to access milk and bread," a spokesperson for the company said.

The prices will mirror those of the same products at Woolworths.

    Will staff be asking "would you like fries with that"?

      Asking to add bacon to the bread would be more realistic. Combine with the free tomato sauce and you've got yourself a decent lunch.

      If it was "would you like toilet paper with that?" the queues would be massive.

    Is it because they’re not selling as much food as before?

        We pay $2.39 for Coles regular milk so I am wondering if the dairy farmers will get more.

          No. Because they don't sell to Maccas directly.

      Just an example, If a healthcare worker drives to maccas after work. They get free coffee. While getting free coffee they remember they need milk and bread. They buy that at the same price as woolies. They then drive home instead of supermarket. They then save time, fuel, less risk than walking around supermarket, and avoid parking fee in some cases.

        Not to mention the reduced risk of potential contamination from both people and all the surfaces in a supermarket.

    McDonald's sold bread and milk when I worked there like 15 years ago. I used to use my 50% staff discount on them.

    Is this real or April fools joke? With everything happening it could be either way.

      Its April fools and honestly a pretty poor one at that.

    If only it were hand sanitizer, soap, tissues and chicken thighs. All things that I find hard to get from the supermarket these days.

      I saw chicken thighs at my local Woolies this morning, but eggs were completely sold out.

    At this point I don't know if this is an April Fool's joke or not; McDonald's has practically nothing about it on their website besides a picture of groceries, but several news websites are reporting it (albeit with different prices). If it is a joke it's going to backfire horribly.

      Their Facebook claims it's not a joke

    Wish they also sold normal loaves of bread

    So McDonald’s has put up the price of the milk by 90 cents after less than a month of selling it. It’s now $3.50 for 2 liters, I find this ridiculous but I guess they figure people will pay for the convenience.
