If there's one business I truly enjoy it's the Backstreet Grill in Salisbury. Always clean, always friendly, prices are fantastic and the food quality is very enjoyable.
I've been frequenting Backstreet for a few years now and one thing that always amazed me was the lengths everyone goes through to make sure no one parks in the Paint Store parking lot next door.
Once a tow truck hooks you up there's a $250.00 fee to get your vehicle back. The Owner of Backstreet has done just about everything he can think of to work something out with the property owner. He's offered money to allow his patrons to park there and even meals to boot. The Paint Store refuses to work with them.
I can tell you first hand, the owner of the Paint Store has a camera set up that they watch all night long and I'm NOT kidding you. They actually sit at home on Friday and Saturday night, (at least) and watch their live camera picking up on someone pulling into their parking lot. Once they do, the Tow Truck company is called immediately and I'm not kidding, within 30 seconds they are there for the tow.
This weekend the owner of Backstreet pulled his pickup truck right next to the Paint Store entrance, put lights on the signs in the bed of the truck in order to keep their customers from parking there. Believe it or not, I even watched someone pull in there and park their car, UNREAL! We warned them immediately and within seconds the Tow Truck was pulling into the parking lot.
If it isn't bad enough that City is so business unfriendly, neighbors can be even worse. The owners of Backstreet even tried putting up the plastic yellow warning tape across the parking lot entrance but the owners of the Paint Store saw it on their cameras and drive down there to pull it down.
I know where I'll never be buying my paint from now on.
