Parking a problem at Bower Place

Employees at Bower Place Shopping Centre were recently informed that they will not be able to park on mall property during the peak Christmas season.

Employees at Bower Place Shopping Centre were recently informed that they will not be able to park on mall property during the peak Christmas season.

They will have to park at Red Deer College and be shuttled back and forth.

With mall hours being increased at that time of year, we will be forced to wait outside during the cold season for a shuttle, then go to the college, then clean and warm our vehicles.

Then we hope to be home before it gets terribly late, only to do it all over again the next day.

The mall cannot continue to expand stores with little or no thought to those whose jobs it is to make the mall a success.

Is this only the begining? Is Easter the next peak time? Or will it be spring break?

City council needs to revisit this issue as it has become an issue for all of us who work at Bower Place.
