Ask Yourself this before you leave your car.
Should I Park Here???
I was told last week by a driver in a sweet black BMW that people don't read Parking Signs. I replied with a pretty car like that you may want to read Parking signs. She kindly moved her car to make space for our valued clients. It's true People Don't read or do they just blow it off and NOT THINK. When you run a business you try to do what seems right. You respect the neighboring businesses and do your best everyday. When someone continues to challenge you in any particular situation you step up and protect whats yours and what you believe and whats simply right and just. Communication is key, Correct?
If The owner of a business doesn't communicate on where you left your car either in signage or verbal who's fault is it?
Your probably asking yourself who cares? Why a Parking Blog? Well because it happens everyday in Downtown Phoenix and most other bigger Metropolitan cities.
This is my reply to a someones frustration for being Towed. If I sound Crazy well then you read it correctly and you know me well. Please understand this happens everyday and if you have ever been to our salon then you will know what I am talking about.
Dear Roseanne. I am Sorry You were towed last night.
The Office Pile has No respect for the surrounding businesses and parking is a serious issue for us downtown business owners. We have been here for 14 years for many reasons. The office Pile has been abusing parking from day one and NEVER tells its (tenants) be it daily, weekly or monthly where to park. We have taken minutes / hours to walk next door and tell people to move their cars. Everyday we go next door interrupting our clients who end up having to park somewhere else. Not Fair to our clients. We are sometimes there early. Sometimes late. We use our salon for evening events as well. So our hours are 24/7 as far as I am concerned. We have 9 Parking signs for 5 spots. We have discussed this with the owners of the Office Pile and Nobody seems to care.
The Office Pile has Zero signs. I suggested they put up a sign at their front door that simply said. PLEASE BE AWARE OF WHERE YOU PARK. Thank you. The office Pile has Not done a thing except allow their people to park anywhere they please. NOT COOL. It happens many times every day/ week. I showed up the next morning to find two SUVs in the same spots and had to have my wife go next door and say something. Again. The Office Pile needs to step up and be honest and fair. Besides the fact the their front two spots are taken by the owner of the building and the side spots are are Blocked for their permanent tenants??? Did I mention we had our baby in the back seat and if I were alone and had to go tell people where to park except my spot and it was 109 degrees.
Roseann I am sorry The office Pile did not inform you and sincerely apologize. I wish they were better neighbors and respected our business. We again have been here almost 14 years and all our other neighbors have been pretty cool. As Downtown continues to flourish parking will alway be an issue. If you are ever in need of a great haircut or color please let us know. In Fact I will Cut your Hair for FREE myself and give you a bottle of shampoo and conditioner if you have any interest. I am again very sorry it was your car that was towed.
I blame the Office Pile for Not informing you where to park. Ask any other business owner in the neighborhood. I have hundreds of photos of illegally parked cars. Yes its an issue. One minute at a time. Oh and for the record I get no Kick Backs from the towing company. Only Frustration about parking.
Again I am sorry it was your car.
Think Before you leave your car. Please Read the Parking signs to protect yourself and your vehicle.
