Parking in Ladysmith – Friendly Reminder

With the installation of the NEW signage for the downtown public parking lots, we want to make sure that YOU and YOUR customers have easy access to and know about free downtown parking options.

We would like to ask that all business people, owners and employees please park in the designated parking lots and not on First Avenue and side streets.

As part of the ‘Try Ladysmith First’ promotion and to encourage downtown shopping we must ensure that there is available parking adjacent to the businesses where customers are shopping and doing business.

Ease of parking is directly related to customer traffic in our stores and businesses, the more easily a customer finds a parking spot near their intended destination, the more likely they are to patronize that business. And we can always use happier customers and more business!

Parking

Drop by the Chamber of Commerce office to pick up a copy of this poster, or contact Diane at the Development Services Office (250-245-6415) and they will deliver one to your business.
