You've got to hand it to Richard Skorman
. He'll do anything to get people into his Poor Richard
's businesses on North Tejon Street
, and he's not afraid to do whatever it takes to get publicity for it.
Once again, Skorman has put on his funny hat as the Parking Elf to plug meters with coins starting tomorrow
from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. He'll also be out with his pockets full of change on Monday and Tuesday
from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and on Christmas Eve
from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
From a news release:
Since the City is graciously giving us this Saturday FREE parking, and Sunday is always FREE, Richard and Patricia decided to add four days as a gift to all our valued Downtown patrons! Friday, Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday(Christmas Eve), Richard, the meter Elf, will be plugging meters for people up and down “300” block of Tejon St.
If “Richard the Parking Elf“ didn’t catch you outside, and you need meter money, just ask for it in the Bookstore/Gift Store or Toy Store.
