A MAN who copped a £90 fine for parking at inside Lidl car park for 15 minutes says he will never shop there again.
Tony Reid, 54, from Gourock in Scotland, made two short trips to the Greenock store on January 15 – but the ParkingEye ticket claim he was there for four hours.
The dismayed shopper believes the camera systems have failed to recognise he left the supermarket in between.
He tried to tell the staff at Lidl but says they were “dismissive” to him in store.
Tony told The Greenlock Telegraph: “I didn’t expect them to set everything right, but the manager I spoke to just wasn’t interested in helping me.
“The car park operator, ParkingEye, has thousands of bad reviews online so I don’t understand why Lidl use them.
“I’m furious that a big company like Lidl has been so difficult.
“I spend about £300 a month in their shop and they’ve just wiped me off like I’m nothing. “
Despite presenting the receipts for both of his visits, he says they don’t seem to care.
Tony said: “I’ll never shop at Lidl again.”
A spokesperson for Lidl GB said the matter needs to be handled by ParkingEye.
They said: “Our car park management systems are in place to help ensure availability of parking spaces for our customers, and it’s therefore disappointing when we learn that a genuine customer has received a parking charge notice.
“In the extremely unfortunate event that a customer believes they have wrongfully received a parking charge, we would encourage them to get in touch with ParkingEye directly via the appeals process and explain their situation.
“Charges can be investigated and if necessary, cancelled as swiftly as possible.”
The Sun has approached ParkingEye for comment.
