LIKE a flock of hungry seagulls, crowds of people packed into the Brassall Seafood and Takeaway over the weekend to take advantage of the store's $1 fish and chips deal.
For one buck, customers could grab a piece of cod and a helping of chips - usually worth $6.
Store owner Sam A Hassan said he made the offer to lure people across Ipswich to try his food.
"It was crazy, at one stage we had three line queues of people which stretched outside the store," he said.
"Some of the customers travelled 20 minutes out of the way to take advantage of the deal...we served hundreds of people.
"I had to get extra staff to help with the workload. Luckily I had extra stock so no one missed out."
The offer was part of the QT's daily deals which allow local businesses to run promotions in the paper.
Selling his fish and chips at a sixth of the normal price, Mr Hassan said his sales almost doubled on Saturday.
