    I just wanted to make others aware of a recent change at this Walmart, and save you a bit of cash. The location in the past as recently as last September mind you, has allowed trucks to park overnight, despite signs posted that no overnight parking was allowed. This is something as we all know is quite common for Walmart locations and often get ignored by drivers.

    There is a husband and wife team working now to enforce the no parking for vehicles greater than 1 ton policy, they won’t ask you to leave, rather they will wait until 2 or 3 am in the morning and boot your truck. The fee to remove the boot is a cool $250. The night I was booted there were 12 others in the lot netting the team a nice little profit for the evening. Please note this is not a complaint by me, I paid the fee and went on my way, I do however want to help this husband and wife team out by stopping others from parking there so they can get a good nights sleep at home instead of waiting around in a Walmart partaking lot - oh and hopefully find other employment that makes them work just a bit harder lol.

    So parker beware, and please be sure to pass this onto others who run through the town on 59.

    Here's another idea, when there's SIGNS all over the parking lot that says NO OVER NIGHT PARKING, it pretty much means no overnight parking.
    Sheesh.....

    Are they there on Walmart's behalf or just some random people?

    Why does it matter? Do you think some random dude came along and started booting trucks?
    By the way, GO HAWKS!!!

    Wouldn't be the first time someone tried to scam a driver.

    There’s a story posted a few years ago about a tow company booting trucks in a lot that they didn’t have the rights to. I don’t remember the name of the thread, but seems like it was in Charlotte nc.

    That location also has the yellow low clearance bars on two of the entrances. That's a pretty good indicator, they don't want trucks in the lot.

    Unfortunately saw those on the way out of the lot lol. The fronts wide open which is where most of the trucks entered the lot.

    I would think the "Booting" companies name/phone number would have to be located at the "NO Parking" signs to inform someone who to call if they were "Booted". A tag, with the phone number on the boot itself would lead one to question the validity of the booting company. Or a call to the store management to verify.
