To kick start the holiday shopping season, Cheltenham Township Main Street is sponsoring free parking in the community’s five commercial districts on November 25 and 26, the “Black Friday” and Saturday after Thanksgiving. On both days, shoppers can focus on shopping rather than obsessing over those gluttonous meters.
Meters will be at rest in Cheltenham Village, East Cheltenham Avenue, Elkins Park East, Elkins Park West and Glenside commercial districts. The usual parking regulations apply outside of those districts.
The township wants to remind residents that buying local helps neighborhood businesses thrive and supports the community’s overall health and vitality.
