Christian Bookstore ‘Clamps Down’ on Unauthorized Parking

Thanks to our friends at The Christian Herald, we were tipped off about a story in The National Post about a Christian bookstore owner in New Brunswick who has zero tolerance for non-customers using her four parking spaces.

To a rookie motorist in Moncton, N.B., the four parking spots beside the R.D. MacLean Christian supplies store look mighty appealing. Why pay for street parking when the shop’s free spots are vacant? But locals have quickly learned the store manager is no timid church mouse: Fed up with non-customers routinely taking those spaces despite a sign warning them against it, Claudia MacLean has started giving them the ‘‘boot’’ — affixing a device that immobilizes their vehicle and costs the driver $85 to be removed. The boots even go on when the store is closed. Drivers are outraged. Even the mayor is upset. The Post spoke with Ms. MacLean — the most unpopular Christian bookstore owner in town — by phone on Thursday.

Read the whole interview here.

So what do you think? Is this good public relations for a Christian bookstore or the vendor of the Good News bad news?

    I think booting when the store is closed is a bit harsh but I understand if your customers cant come shop because the parking spots are all full it would probably make me do something. In my town though there would probably be more back lash from booting peoples cars then from lack of parking
