Holiday shopping can be brutal. Waiting in lines, no sales folks to help you, can’t find the right size, you get it. Parking in Princeton can be equally brutal. But to ease your pain and help you shop local the Princeton Merchants Association has you covered, literally. Every Sunday in December before Christmas you’ll see the parking meters around Palmer Square covered in white bags, meaning no paying and no tickets.
Also, Palmer Square is having a holiday parking party every night. Free parking if you get your ticket validated at a store in Palmer Square thru January 1.
It’s simple: Monday-Saturday, enter either the Chambers Street or Hulfish Street garage after 4:30pm and exit before 10:00pm; visit a store or restaurant on the Square and request a validation ticket; present the ticket upon exiting the garage and your parking will be FREE. On Sundays, enter after 10:00am and exit before 10:00pm.
That’s the Scoop. Enjoy shopping locally and for more ideas on gift giving visit our online Holiday Gift Guide here.
