Traders hogging on-street parking spaces
PUBLISHED: 14:41 04 January 2011
Seaton shoppers forced to go elsewhere.
2011 shows no sign of being any easier for small businesses in Seaton. However, some of the shopkeepers and businesses in Cross Street and Queen Street do themselves and their fellow traders no favours by occupying for long periods, sometimes all day, parking spaces in the street with their own vehicles.
I mention no names, they know who they are, as do their potential customers who have to take their trade elsewhere because they cannot find spaces to park.
They should think twice before driving sorely-needed custom into the arms of the supermarkets with their abundant free convenient parking.
