I shop at several “chain” retail stores for groceries, household stuff, prescriptions, electronics, etcetera, mainly in two states, but places in between, too. One thing I dislike most about shopping is to try and find a parking place way out where it’s least likely that some idiot will pound door dings in my vehicle that I try and maintain in new condition. Often they find me and park next to me anyhow and do their thing. These heat-seeking idiots are on every regular parking lot.
My Hat Is Off To COSTCO
Nowhere that I shop (except online, ha, ha) offers parking spaces that protect my vehicles from nicks and dings better than the way Costco does.
The parking spaces are long and wide, I mean WIDE! Then there’s lines reserving EXTRA SPACE between the already WIDE spaces. Wide vehicles, Hummers, trucks, etcetera have plenty of room to be safe.
Also, they provide walkways to get from the parking lot to the building without mixing it up with crazy car drivers. They’ve got the safest lots I’ve seen.
I shop and buy gas at my local COSTCO on days other than week-end days and it’s never crowded. Although I never try, parking near the entrance is easy for those who choose to be lazy or have physical disabilities or limits.
So, I salute them for looking out for me and my car. I’m sure it’s quite costly acquiring considerably more real estate and adding more pavement and lines, but I sure appreciate it. I look forward to parking there after I buy my gas there.
Does anybody know of another retail chain of stores that has more considerate parking?
I’d like to hear about it.
