MINNEAPOLIS - Hundreds of customers were angry to find the Popeye’s on Lake Street in Minneapolis was not offering a national promotion.
For Earth Day, Popeye’s was offering eight fried chicken pieces for $4.99 -- a special well-advertised on TV in Minneapolis.
But homemade signs on the door at the Popeye’s on Lake Street said it wasn't honoring the nationally advertised special. Instead, they were offering nine pieces for $9.99
The line for Popeye's was out the door Wednesday afternoon and early evening. A half-dozen Minneapolis police officer showed up to settle the crowd down.
The Lake Street Popeye's is the only Popeye's in the state of Minnesota.
Customers said it's not the first time the franchise has refused to honor a nationally advertised special.
