I write about the consumer speaking with their dollars if they have a problem with the way they’re being treated. I’ve walked out of enough businesses to show that I practice what I preach.
Wynn is jacking up the Garth Brooks tickets by $110 to $253, including taxes and pencil-sharpening fees and whatever else.
These illicited an outpouring of complaints in the blogosphere and twitterspere. Why wouldn’t Wynn raise ticket prices to the always sold out show? It’s a simple case of supply and demand.
Sure a $100 raise in price is shocking, but until shows go with empty seats there’s no reason for Wynn to stop increasing prices on the Garth Brooks concert.
If you don’t like the price increase don’t go. The best way for any business to hear you is for your money not to continue flowing their way. If you’re very upset, stay away from the Wynn and Encore hotel, casino, restaurants and bars and spread the word to your friends.
For full disclosure I don’t care for Garth Brooks, so this won’t effect any plans I have in the future.
