    I want to try something and so I need help from all Millis drivers. I want to start a thread on locations that have confirmed overnight parking available. No "I think so" or "Maybe you can" I want only confirmed, accessible overnight parking and if there are facilities, include that also. If you guys will help, I will ask for this to be stickied so it can be easily accessed. Keep the post as concise as possible so people don't have to scroll through a ton of conversation to access the information. Thanx to all who assist.

    To begin: GENCO in EFFINGHAM, Il has overnight parking, they are open 24/7 and have accessible restrooms for Drivers and vending machines. Park in a parking spot in back of the building where you check in.

    Menards, Shelby Il. Has parking out front for drivers waiting, you can park as long as needed. Inside Transportation office is a break room with vending machines and restrooms, however, it is locked after hours. They are building a Love's across the street with 91 parking spaces but it is far from completion as of today.

    Menards 72 in Normal, Il allows parking in thier front parking lot for drivers making or finishing a delivery. You can stay as long as needed. No facilities outside of the store.

    Blues City Brewery in Memphis has a TON of parking and they are open 24/7. They WILL take you early, as long as 24 hours early, and you can stay as long as needed.

    Miller Brewery, Ft. Worth, you can remain on site through the night. Park at the Shipping office on the way out, Not the Dunnage shipping.

    Castle and Cooke You can park on the road to the East. Not much parking, enough for about 3 trucks. If you try to park inside during the day they will run you off. If you park on the street where the shipping entrance is no one will bother you, you have to do a u turn to access it. If you wait until just before they lock that gate and pull in and park in one of the spots right before the shipping office they usually won't bother you, but you can not park there during the day. They have driver accessible bathrooms and vending machines.

    That is all I can think of right off the top of my head. Some Help Please

    Det Distributing in Nashville, TN.... You can line up in front of the gate to the right of the building and line up all the way into the street in the granny lane without being bothered. No facilities until you get inside the gate, then they have restrooms and vending machines.
