Mary’s Gourmet Diner in Winston-Salem, NC might have won a few customers at the expense of losing a few.
When Jordan Smith ate at Mary’s Gourmet Diner, she received a 15% discount off of her meal when the server noticed she prayed for her meal before eating.
According to the dining establishment, “We give [the discount] at random to customers who take a moment before their meal. This could be prayer or just a moment to breathe and push the busyness of the world away. Who you talk to or meditate on etc. is your business.”
The owner of the restaurant said the discount is extended to anyone they notice who is approaching his or her meal with an attitude of thankfulness.
They’ve since retracted the discount after receiving threats of a lawsuit.
