POLL: Now that B.C. has partially reopened, has the cost of goods and services increased?

June 10, 2020 - 12:06 PM

Now that B.C. is solidly down the path of re-opening in the wake of COVID-19, we're curious if any of those reopened businesses are charging more for services.

We've heard various reports that are hard to quantify. Some people complain about the price of beef and other meats. We've also heard anecdotal accounts of restaurants and pubs charging more, as well as haircuts and personal services being more expensive. 

We're not making any judgements here, we know businesses have been hit hard. We're just curious what you are finding as you slowly resume normal activities. Are prices up?
