Free parking for late-night Christmas shoppers

As part of the late-night shopping events in the run-up to Christmas, the multi-storey car park at Abbey Walk in Grimsby will open later and there’ll be free parking.

Shoppers will be able to park free-of-charge between 6pm and 9pm every Thursday from November 24 to December 15, plus every evening during Christmas week, Monday, December 19 to Friday, December 23 inclusive.

Additionally, there will be free parking at Freshney Place Shopping Centre after 5pm every late night Thursday from November 24 to December 25 and every evening during Christmas week, Monday December 19 to Friday December 23 inclusive.

Councillor David Watson, cabinet member for energy and environment, said: “Christmas in Grimsby just gets bigger and better each year, in particular the Mayor’s parade and Christmas light switch-on events, which will take place on November 24 this year.

“Why travel out of town to shop when everything is right here on your doorstep? That’s why we are encouraging more people to come into Grimsby town centre and shop locally.

“I’m delighted we can offer additional parking free-of-charge for late-night Christmas shoppers again this year at Abbey Walk.”
