Revisiting an old theme, businesses that take up all the parking on Lighthouse Avenue. This week I had a chance to speak with one of the business people, here’s how it went:

Me, on my Saturday visit downtown to go to the bank and walk from there down to the post office. I’m at Forest and Lighthouse, waiting to turn right and park someplace. I see this short guy get into the brown Hazara Designer Collection van that is parked on Forest avenue and start it up. He’s squeezing between my car and the sidewalk to ALSO turn right. He stops, I turn and begin a parking space search. Nothing on the south side, I go down to 15th and hang a U-turn. I park on the north side in the 400 block.

At the same time the short guy is getting out of the brown rug van, now parked on Lighthouse in front of the store of the same name. What the heck, I want to see if he has an answer for me. I walk up and ask why he parks his van here and not in the lot around the block? He shrugs. Shouldn’t you leave the parking spaces available for people that come to town to shop instead of moving your van back and forth in 90 minute spaces all day? “No, what’s it matter to you?” he says. It matters to me that I might be a business owner that has customers complaining about hard to find parking spaces. It matters to me that I myself am looking for a place to park for 30 minutes and seeing your rug cleaner van taking up spaces is a poor practice. Told him I’ll never shop at his store or recommend it. He says he does not need my business or any of my friends business.

Hear that? Does not need our business. Hope he gets fleas in his rug.

    I’ve bought many fine rugs from this store, and the people are always friendly to me.

    I’m friendly to people when I get money from them too.

  2. When we are grasping at the open air to find ways to improve the visitor experience trifle matters add up. Things that cost money like sidewalk repair, stupid things like detouring 17 Mile Drive traffic to downtown, etc.

    I’ve got only two gripes, things that I find annoying, and both cost nothing to improve – businesses taking up the easy parking spaces and businesses feeding the pooping birds.

    Short guy driving the rug van could have just said he was loading or unloading the truck, instead he said he didn’t care. That’s the wrong attitude to take.

  3. Hello Dear.
