If you are a Downtown Frederick business owner, you can contact the City's Parking Department at 301-600-1429 or visit the Parking Staff at the Court Street parking garage to learn more and sign up for the program, which allows you to offer your customers validated parking passes in various dollar amounts.
Clyde Hicks, owner of The Trail House on S. Market Street shares this about the program,
"We have been using the Park and Shop program for years and our customer's seem
to really appreciate it. We encourage our staff to promote the program to our customers and
over the years, more and more people are taking advantage of it. To us, its seems like a
win-win for our business and our customers."
"The Park and Shop program provides a great service to our customers. Downtown businesses are at a disadvantage compared to mall and free-standing stores, which have convenient, free parking. This program allows downtown merchants to counteract at least the cost of parking in the decks to shop downtown, where there is limited on-street parking near their stores (which is not free)."
