This store owner is complaining that parking is no longer free across the street. The garage that was full now requires that he pay. However if he parks a couple of blocks away, she can park for a lower price, and even a bit further, she can park for free.
The process opens up spaces for her customers, who, it is assumed, had difficulty finding parking space.
My word to Chef Andrea — your customers should come first. Take a short walk, save some money, give your customers a place to park, and make the best pizza in the world. Guess what? The world will beat a path to your door, no matter what the parking across the street costs.
I guarantee it.
