Sainsbury's finally drop 33p a minute parking charge
And now, some happy news. Back in September of last year, avid Bitterwallet reader Lynda contacted us after discovering that the oafs in charge of her local Kettering Sainsbury’s car park had gone off their heads and were charging a flat rate of fifty quid to anyone who dared to park for more than two hours. That's 33p a minute maths fans!
Naturally, anyone who saw the sign thought the whole thing was utterly bonkers – but now Lynda has observed that the wind of change has swept through that car park and the extortionate charge has gone. And look, see how professional and easy to understand the sign is now! Gotta love those stickers!
Lord only knows how much customer dissent the original price plan led to but if Sainsbury's hadn’t brought in the madcap scheme in the first place, their customers would have been a damn sight happier and now everyone wouldn’t be looking at a sign that looks like it should be in a skip round the back of the Tate Modern.
Should we be roaring ‘It was Bitterwallet what won it!’ over this one? No, probably not.
