Double Cheeseburger Issue (part 2)

Fans of The McChronicles will recall vividly how The McChronicles discussed the "goings-on" related to the double cheeseburger. Here is more info.

Background:
McDonald's is reportedly experimenting with either removing the double cheeseburger from the dollar menu or cheapening it up by removing cheese, or discontinuing it. Prices (for some version of the above) are said to be ranging from $1.00 to $1.09 to $1.19.


Today:
Being in a "need to know" mode, The McChronicles drove to our home McDonald's, took a look at the menu and - BAM! There it was, double cheeseburger, $1. Just like always. Apparently, The McChronicles was not in a test zone.

LOCATION:
New Hartford, NY (Route 5)
STORE #: 825
ORDER: Double cheeseburger, small fries, bottled water


Result:

The McChronicles purchased a double cheeseburger, a small order of fries, and enjoyed it - a lot.

wow! way to get to the bottom of it!

It's now $1.39 at my local mcdonalds (uptown, Minneapolis)

I'll try the double hamburger with cheese route next time.

The fabulous profit margin they enjoyed on that $1.59 bottle of water more than offsets the reduced profit margin on the $1 double cheeseburger.

Hey Guys,

I just discovered this site and I think its awesome to see people who love mcDonalds as well. This site is awesome.

Anyone know anything about the McRib coming back? Last year they had the "farewell tour" but when you go to mcrib.com now, we see "Saucy Love is Back", which makes me assume it is/on its way back. Phone calls to chains in Southern California returned up nil, how about anyone else?

@shaqdonalds: The McChronicles is visiting McDonald's world HQ next week. Your inquiry will be made at that time. THANKS for the comment.

Western burbs of Chicago - no more $1 double cheese... :(

The McChronicles just dined in McDonald's 50th anniversary restaurant on 600 N. Clark St., Chicago - no value menu at all.

This is a special store, and we guess they figure they can command premium prices.

The double cheeseburger cost us $2.15 versus $1.00 in our home McDonald's.

I don't see the reason to descontinue cheeseburgers when they are greatly sold. Probably, it would be a great idea to launch temporary products and keep the classic ones.
