Was it something you said? A couple readers have informed Swamplot that the stenciled nametags that appeared recently apportioning every single parking space in the lot in front of the Shoppes at Memorial Heights shopping center to one of the resident businesses at 920 Studewood St. have just as suddenly been covered over. Stripes of white paint have now been painted on top of the stenciled signs throughout the parking lot. Which means that next time you’re visiting Hair Desire, Absolve Wine Bar, Urban Cleaners, or (more likely, apparently) Beer Market Co., you will no longer have to check underneath or behind your car to make sure that you’ve parked in a space appropriate to your shopping-center visit.
Instead, you are now free to park as far as possible from the business you intend to patronize (please stay within the lot, though), and triumphantly stomp on or saunter past dozens of newly re-anonymized spaces on your march in.
Swamplot reported on the appearance of the stencils, and the accompanying divvying-up of the spaces, last week, prompting a number of reader comments about the apparent new parking policy at the stucco strip center. Here’s what the parking-space labels looked like:
The white stripes made their appearance yesterday.
