Why does the city of Charleston charge people $1.75 to park at the mall. Is it just me or does it seem they are charging you extra to spend more money. That garage has been paid for time & time again over the years and could def use some upgrades. On another note, could they at least hire some parking attendants who are not complete retards and open more than one booth during the lunch hour rush. Today they had cars backed up to the Municipal Auditorium on Truslow St. due to having only one booth open. Most days that old hag Bonnie is working the booth and bitches & complains to patrons chatting them up while the line of cars start backing up. Is this just me, or does this irritate others?

It's not owned by the City of Charleston. A private company that owns the mall owns it.

Because they can. Have you ever been to a major ballpark, zoo or amusment park or even a hospital for that mtter. They all charge for parking because they can. Anything to make that extra dollar, and people pay it.

My bad, I didn't realize it wasn't owned by the city. It's still kinda ridiculous that you have to pay parking to go shopping.

Been to all of the above, and totally agree with you but it still sucks to have to pay to park at any of those places especially the hospital.

You do not have to pay for parking! Park in a residenrial neighborhood one mile away and walk to the mall. When you are done, walk a mile back to your vehicle carrying your purchases. You have just saved $1.75.

You can park in the Sears automotive lot. They don't monitor it unless there is a concert or event at the Civic Center. There are also meters in the Municipal Auditorium lot and on the Lee St ground level side of the actual mall parking garage. Normally, when I pull in there my meter has at least a half hour left on it. FREE PARKING WITH NO MILE WALK! Also, on Lee st side there are no lift gates blocking the service lane. Plenty of people park in there all day every day.

Are you seriously mad about $1.75 parking charge? Go to any other city in American and get hit with $25-50 a day.

Under 2 bucks is a steal for covered parking 40 seconds or less from your destination.

But let me guess. That $6 a pack of cigs is a heck of a deal?

Try parking on the street and pay a buck an hour and if your 8 seconds late its $5 and then $25 in 48 hours. Please!
