SPOKANE, WA, November 23, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/ -- According to the L.A. Times, Walmart started Black Friday on Thanksgiving Thursday this year, with shoppers who lined up between 10 p.m. and 11 p.m. promised at least three "good deals." The International Business Times reported that a Best Buy in Florida had people beginning to pitch tents outside its doors on Saturday--almost five days early--(but police forced them to leave). And American Express is once again offering credit for people shopping at brick-and-mortar stores on Main Street.
What does this have to do with parking? People may not mind waiting in line once they reach their destination, but nobody enjoys endlessly circling the block in search of an empty meter. And the more often it happens, the more it adds to traffic congestion and urban pollution. Fortunately, the rise of the personal phone has given technology a way to make the ever-present search for parking easier and less frustrating.
One such example is OmniPark's pay-by-phone parking system, CallToPark. The free apps are available for Androids and iPhonesójust download at either the App Store or on the Android market.
CallToPark takes all major credit cards, and people can pay from the comfort and safety of their vehicles. Online receipts are available.
So take parking off the list of items to worry about this holiday weekend: Whether that list includes big-box stores, independent retailers, or a combination, OmniPark can provide parking peace of mind.
