Unfair to other CHS students
I think Cumberland Farms gave students plenty of notice.
The store was closed, so the lot was empty every day, but signs said “No Parking.”
That Cumberland Farms paid students or their families back to cover towing fees, plus gave them $100 gift cards, basically rewarded them for bad behavior.
This is not fair for students who park far away and walk. And it’s also not fair for students who won senior parking spots in the annual fall lottery and then had to pay $40 for the privilege.
If Cumberland Farms hadn’t reimbursed families or given them gift cards, it might have taught the students and families a lesson. Instead, the company paid hush money so people would stop complaining and Cumberland Farms wouldn’t look bad for fighting with potential customers.
