A reader informed that Snip Avenue has increased the prices of its haircut services. A usual hair cut previously cost $3.80, but it appears haircuts are now priced at $6.80. Other Snip Avenue branches had reportedly followed suit and upped their pricing to $6.80. However, our reader questioned the rationale for this price increase. If COVID-19 is used to justify price increases for other businesses, there is concern this may start a trend of consumers bearing more costs in these hard times.
