Not Your Change Monkey

Queen City Confidential | by Anonymous

Yes, parking in downtown Regina sucks but that doesn’t mean it’s the responsibility of area businesses to provide change for meters. Do you know where shops, restaurants, delis and pubs get change? We have to get it from banks, and you should too. Three times a week, our business goes to our local branch with a stack of bills so we’ll have change for our customers. It’s something we have to do — and we do with pleasure — but it’s too much to expect us to provide parking change to someone who’s not even spending money in our store. That’s not our responsibility as a business. Go to a bank like we do, and get your own “two toonies and a loonie” — there are more than enough banks downtown. Or just plan ahead, and keep meter money in your glove box.
