Salem offers free parking for shoppers

The Salem News

---- — SALEM — The city is offering free parking downtown over the Thanksgiving holiday.

Tomorrow, Friday and Saturday, residents and visitors will be able to park for free in all parking garages and lots.

“Salem has many wonderful locally owned stores and restaurants,” Mayor Kim Driscoll said in a statement. “Our small businesses provide so much support to the community, and it’s important to support them, especially during the holidays.”

Downtown free parking coincides with Small Business Saturday — the Saturday after Thanksgiving when people are encouraged to support local retailers.
