A Dublin student has successfully won a battle to get a college shop to lower the price of a chicken fillet roll.
The Londis store at DCU had been selling the roll for €4.50, but extra fillings brought it up to €5.50. Student Callaghan Commons was not happy with the price and tweeted his plans to boycott the shop. While another student called it 'daylight robbery'.
The shop quickly responded telling Callaghan they were 'reviewing their prices'.
After Callaghan's original tweet gained 1,500 likes, Londis announced it was lowering the price to €3.75.
In a statement, management at the shop said: 'We are pleased to announce that we are now trialling a reduced price of €3.75 for a chicken fillet roll at our deli. Extra fillings are also now at a reduced price of 25c each.'
