Lidl in­tro­duces car park sys­tem

Western Daily Press (Saturday) - - News -

A LIDL in Som­er­set has launched a new check-in sys­tem to curb mis­use of its car park.

Mo­torists who fail to reg­is­ter their ve­hi­cle de­tails in­side the branch at Cas­tle Street in Taunton now risk a £90 charge.

Signs at the store say the charge will ap­ply to non-Lidl cus­tomers, with de­tails of ve­hi­cles us­ing the car park are recorded in CCTV cam­eras.

To avoid the park­ing charge, mo­torists have to en­ter reg­is­tra­tion de­tails and scan a till re­ceipt at a com­puter in­side the store.

Lidl spokesman said: “Lidl has car park man­age­ment sys­tems in place at stores where car parks are sub­ject to mis­use.

“Th­ese are in place to man­age the avail­abil­ity of park­ing spa­ces, to en­sure that cus­tomers take pri­or­ity.”
