[Story Ticker] October 28 Update
Welcome back readers! GRN correspondent, Alda Sigmundsdóttir enlightens readers on the closing of McDonald’s in Iceland.
Excerpt from blog
“It is not McDonald’s per se who is leaving, but rather the people who have held the franchise have decided that, what with all the food needing to be imported [McDonald’s apparently doesn’t trust anyone else to make their delicious burger patties], it’s no longer viable to maintain in the current economic climate. So not only is the kreppa saving the children, it’s also vastly improving our culinary habits.”
