Maccas lands in the bus interchange

By johnboy - 28 December 2011 39

After months of construction the Civic bus interchange now has a McDonalds.

If you’re looking for something to do during this hiatus period then it’s well worth dropping into.

Never will you see so very many people so furiously engaged in achieving so little as the new team beds in.

Civics cafes and eateries will need to stay on their game now that the bog standard is now so centrally and prominently located.

What’s Your opinion?

I think it’s a good thing for the interchange. One less deserted shopfront in any case. I’d certainly feel a bit safer waiting in there for my bus than outside if I found myself needing to catch one later in the evening. Free wi-fi is a bonus too, although if we’re lucky the Government’s investigation of wi-fi on the buses will end with a trial and even a rollout…

I’m not sure why people are so down on Maccas – it’s a great business model and it has stood the test of time. They’re not pretending to serve gourmet food, rather a range of cheap and cheerful items that many people like..

And no, I don’t work for them, or have anything to do with them professionally. It just seems snobby to continually bag them.

Over 30,000 “hamburger” dispensaries around the world. At least their “food” will be better than the dodgy looking pizza slices sold at high profit around Civic late on Saturday nights.

P.S. Anyone want to buy a portable pizza warmer?

I think one of the main reasons they added that Maccas was for the late-night crowd. That sounds OK to me as that is when you need the stodge! πŸ™‚

Speaking of which, if it’s 24 hours, then maybe we didn’t need those nearby public toilets then. Good ol’ free market.

I’ll still be spending my spare time at the Phoenix (assuming the hours coincide).

Its fair to assume the inflatable golden arches is temporary.
