City Of Philadelphia Gives Shoppers A Holiday Gift
By Robin Culverwell
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – If you’re trying to plan your holiday errands, the City of Philadelphia has a gift for you again this year: free Saturday parking at meters city wide at 11 a.m. starting tomorrow.
It’s a holiday tradition that goes back several years as a way to bring shoppers into the city.
Several people among the crowds in Old City on Friday love the idea.
“It’s a great idea,” one person said.
“Yeah, it would make making plans on a Saturday – going out to dinner in the city – a lot easier,” agreed another.
Other parking rules will be enforced on Saturdays.
And FYI, meters in Center City are free every Wednesday after 5 p.m.
