PULLING FOR FRIENDLY’S

The article on the new CEO of Friendly’s was titled “John Maguire Has a Plan to Save Friendly’s” (August 25), but let’s be realistic. There are just too many options for fast-food places unless you come up with a promotion for people to think about Friendly’s once again. So how about Friendly’s institutes family prices: 99-cent ice cream cones, 99-cent hot dogs, 99-cent hamburgers, 99-cent french fries, 99-cent soft drinks. That’ll get ’em back, and then they’ll buy a half gallon of ice cream to take home.
