The businesses are not better with the school there. I do not know how you can be such a jerk with how you talk..No - I have kids in the lower school and have never parked up there to pick up kids. Every single day, I do see TONS of uniform-wearing kids eating ice cream and walking around with snacks that they bought at those businesses. Not to mention how many times we send in money for organized field trips to go get treats up there.
Those businesses were pieces of crap on a rural road - PLP is keeping them alive! Guarantee you, they'd be out of business by now had PLP not built there.
Truthfully PLP takes advantage of the situation. I know the businesses appreciates having the classes come up there for field trips but it does not mean that parents can take up parking or do whatever they want. The penguin palace I know for a fact has always had a great business,(not crappy) They have always had a ton of customers especially on the weekends and summer. They were established way before PLP was built. They have been there since 2002 and that is when I started going there with my family. I know people from all over who when they come to North Carolina they have to come by for a shaved Ice. So you apparently acting like all these other stuck up parents who dont think their poop don't stink need to get a clue,The two businesses are just like every other business out there and should be treated just the same.
I just do not see how you can be so arrogant?
