BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2023 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — Pay to pay! Royal Palm Place, known for trendy shops and restaurants in Downtown Boca Raton, is now charging customers for the privilege of parking to spend money in the center’s shops and restaurants. Those who don’t pay to park are finding their cars towed or booted.
While parking fees are certainly not abnormal in Boca Raton, many surprised shoppers reaching out to BocaNewsNow.com say they are shocked that Royal Palm Place would charge anything — especially for customers eating in restaurants and spending money in the stores it oversees as a landlord.
The signs, recently installed, include a QR code which parkers are supposed to scan. We tested the QR code and found that it charges $2.50 an hour with a maximum of $20. You have to enter your license plate and a credit card. There is no cash option. As is the case with all private lots, Royal Palm Place can ticket, boot, or tow any vehicle that is not logged in its payment system. Witnesses tell BocaNewsNow.com that it’s already happening.
“I’ve watched cars get booted,” said one angry customer. “I can’t believe they’re doing this.”
We were unable to find a representative from the center’s management company to discuss the parking charges. We’ll update if contact is made. Royal Palm is home to restaurants like Chop’s, Gary Rack’s Farmhouse Kitchen, Saquella Cafe, Boca Bagel Bar, Funky Biscuit, Lemongrass, The Standard, Boca Nails, Lily of New York Salon, Man Cave, Puppily Ever After, Douglas Elliman, Petite Designers, Edwards Jones, Palm Beach International Academy, Royal Palm Hearing Aid Center, and more.
