Glenwood South restaurant gets tough on towing
Posted August 7, 2015
Raleigh, N.C. — With parking tight in the Glenwood South district of Raleigh, one business is cracking down on those who take up their lot.
"We didn't realize how big a situation it was," said Mellow Mushroom General Manager, Steve Gardner.
Gardner said he was forced to put up big signs alerting non-customers to stay away.
"If you are dining with us, you are good," he said "But if you are going across the street, or down the street, or wherever, you are probably going to get towed.res
The signs read ,"don't try to trick us, we are watching." And according to Gardner, if a person tries to buy a beer inside the restaurant after realizing their car was towed, they will not get the car back.
He said in one day, seven cars were towed.
"Even after the big sign...it was the most we had," Gardner said.
Glenwood South visitors agree parking is a pain, but Rachel Brame said she understands why Mellow Mushroom is cracking down.
"I feel like they definitely have to do that because everyone would park there. I would," Brame said.
