    Lidl parking charge

    Lidl parking charge 3rd Oct 17 at 1:15 PM

    I went to Lidl last week with my wife who went in store to have a look around. I stayed in the car. She was in store for about 25 mins and didn't buy anything. A week later i got a parking charge for 90!

    The old system which i thought still stood was one hour free parking. As i parked up i saw the sign that said customer parking only and thought no problem.

    My wife who's first language is not English didn't realise that things had changed.

    I went back to the store to have a look and the small print says u have to enter registration number. U also have to actually buy something to get a receipt to scan to be eligible for free parking. So basically u can't just walk out with nothing like my wife did.

    I've read the appeals template but is point one valid?

    No need for you to contact the ppc

    They should contact you to confirm it's been cancelled
