New improvements at the very busy Fashion Valley Mall have made finding a parking spot a little easier for the weary.
The new parking guidance system at the mall at 7007 Friars Rd. shows shoppers how many spots are open on each level of each parking garage before pulling in.
For a small fee, the "Upfront Plus" parking option, and ticketless valet parking powered by smart devices have made preferred parking easier there as well.
The pay-by-phone feature allows valet parkers to call ahead for their car and eliminates the need to have cash.
“To ensure a seamless shopping experience for our valued shoppers, we’re making some exciting changes and upgrades at Fashion Valley,” said Chris Lane, Director of Marketing and Business Development at Fashion Valley. “From parking guidance systems to convenient valet drop off, parking has never been simpler.”
Fashion Valley is offering a promotion on UpFront Plus parking. Shoppers can take advantage of a special rate for the month of April of $1 per hour, with a maximum charge of $5, down from a maximum charge of $7 typically.
Owners of electric cars can charge their vehicle while they shop at several charging stations within the garages.
