CHANGES to car parking fees at Marks and Spencer, Newport, will take place from Monday.
The company has decided to implement new charges at the Isle of Wight store as a trial and hopes the changes will ensure parking spaces are available for their customers.
From Monday, the cost of parking at the Newport site will be £1 for up to two hours, £2 for up to the maximum three hours but if £3 or more is spent in store, customers will be able to receive a £1 refund.
A Marks and Spencer spokesperson said: "We are always looking to ensure we have parking spaces available for our customers, which is why we’re trialling this approach.
"We have introduced this at other stores and have seen a marked improvement in parking availability."

It's about time Morrisons stopped using a stupid barrier into their car park! The queues are horrendous - going back outside onto Church Litten and even St Georges Approach! Then you collect a ticket when you eventually go through the barrier only to find no-one is manning the box on the exit when you've finished shopping! Absolute waste of time! Surely, the police should be notified as to Morrisons causing horrendous obstructions to outside traffic!

Good idea - it's always difficult to park in their car park, unless you arrive first thing in the morning or late afternoon.
