If you regularly travel to our store by car, you may have noticed that our own parking lot behind the store is very popular. For your convenience, we have made arrangements that permit our customers to park without charge at several other nearby parking lots.
Our validation stamps are accepted at any other attended lot in the University District that has a blue and yellow sign at the entrance. The closest of these is on the east side of Brooklyn Avenue NE between NE 42nd Street and NE 43rd Street. This lot is within easy walking distance of the store and normally accessible when our own lot is full.
