Atlanta Criminal Records Parking is Criminal
I never expected to pay like a criminal while shopping for records but that’s exactly what happened at Atlanta’s Criminal Records.
I had driven about 5 hours from Nashville the prior night and checked into a hotel. When morning came I tried to find the most creative place to start our shopping so I looked up stores and Atlanta’s Criminal Records came up in the Google Search.
I plugged it into my GPS and started travelling. When we got there parking was hard to find but I eventually found a spot. I never thought to wonder if they charged for street parking on weekends. I parked my car and went in for 10 minutes to look and make a $2 purchase of a CD single.
When I came out, 10 minutes later, there was a parking ticket. It turns out the space IS metered but you have to go to a little machine and get pay a parking fare, it’s not coin driven or a traditonal parking meter.
In that sense I paid $37.00 (counting the processing fee) for the privellege of shopping at Criminal Records. So be warned, the City of Atlanta has made it criminally expensive to shop for records!
