HAPPENING AT BUNGALOW
Stop & Shop Update: Parking Under Review
By Dan Guarino
Now that the exhaust has
begun to clear, the towing
situation at the Stop & Shop
parking lot is coming into fo-
cus.
As reported in the Rock-
away Times and other out-
lets, complaints about cars
being aggressively towed out
of the lot have risen dramat-
ically in the last few months.
Community outrage, calls for
boycotts and other measures
quickly followed.
As we found out, part of the
problem was finding out who
actually had control of the
lot, and who held the actual
contract with Arverne’s B&M
Towing. Benenson Realty,
listed as the property owner,
and the Stop & Shop corpora-
tion were called.
In an update to the original
story a spokesperson for Ben-
enson contacted The Rocka-
way Times and said the park-
ing lot is controlled by Stop
& Shop. The entire property
including the parking lot and
policies associated with the
lot is controlled by Stop &
Shop. So questions, the Ben-
enson representative said,
should be directed to them.
The spokesperson also ad-
vised that "Benenson Capital
has notified Stop & Shop that
their policy is creating com-
munity concern, and they
have confirmed that the pol-
icy and towing contract are
theirs."
We also reached out to Stop
& Shop’s corporate offices,
and received a return call from
Director of Marketing and Ex-
ternal Communications Jim
Keenoy. He said the com-
pany’s Real Estate and Asset
Management divisions were
looking into the situation.
“We did more follow up,”
Keenoy was able to report in
response to RT’s next call.
“We are tracking down the
routing of the parking lot
contract through our compa-
ny. We’re evaluating it and we
are looking to make changes.”
While the particulars of
those changes are yet to be
decided, he did say that “We
take these things seriously.
At the end of the day, we take
the feedback, good and bad.
Then we try to do the right
thing.”
Hopefully this will put the
brakes on this white line con-
troversy and put it in park
once and for all.
The lot that’s rarely full
