Reviews and Additional Information
Also got fined £60 for shopping here. We had lunch in Dunelm mill. Spent in B and M , Spent around £250 in B and Q and around £300 in Next !!!!. It was a bank holiday shopping trip with my mum. . I am utterly disgusted with this idea of 2 hours free parking but NO option to pay to stay longer!! It is impossible to shop at the snipe in 2 hours if you want to do a couple if shops plus grab a bite to eat. It’s just not worth giving the shops the business ….How on earth could you sort out the big purchase of a new kitchen from Wren kitchens in 2 hours for example? … Let them destroy their own business with these ridiculous fines is what I say….We keep bring told that the high street is dying!! I wonder why? … Everyone should be aware of this type of legal parking charge scam. !!!! Shame on the land owners for being beyond greedy!!!
It’s happening more and more in all types of retail outlets …I even had to confront my local Sainsbury’s store about it!! I spend around £6000 a year there . I was told that if I stayed over 2 hours then I would receive a fine but if I took my receipt they would have the fine waived. ..Fine but I won’t be bobbing into the cafe before I do a big shop from now on in case I go over my 2 hours !!
So Snipe retail park…..If you want to visit then make sure you keep your trip to a minimum.. Don’t fall for the scam?!!!
Another retail park another Automated car parking fine system, do yourself a favour and save the hassle of parking here. Customer’s are treated with a laughable content.
Had a job done on my car Saturday 30th May 2015 by Andy. What a knowledgeable man and nothing too much trouble. In my opinion you are very lucky to have this man in your employment.
