“The inflationary environment has certainly meant that many of our community groups have come to us and asked for this change,’’ Bunnings managing director Mike Schneider told the Herald Sun.
“We understand very much the really important role the humble snag plays in the community’s psyche.”
“And undoubtedly any change in price, particularly in the current environment, is something that is going to gather some level of attention.’’
The good news is that drinks will stay the same price at $1.50.
The Daily Mail reports that over the last 5 years, community groups have run more than 155,000 sausage sizzles at Bunnings stores across Australia and raised $140 million for charity.
The price increase will take effect from Saturday, July 23 and impact 300 Aussies stores.
The reaction to the price increase has been met very positively on social media and in the Better Homes and Gardens community with saying they are happy to pay extra for a snag at Bunnings.
"Had to happen sooner or later given the rising cost of everything. And it's the first rise in 15 years. Won't stop me from being there Saturday morning," said one commenter on Facebook.
Another said: "About time By the time Clubs take out$$ for, sauces ,bread, onions, sausage & drinks etc., the club doesn’t make much to put out into the community for a days work. Appreciate what the Club do. To help the ones in need."
