Reaction on social media has been overwhelmingly negative. I was surprised at the response.
I don't think the new policy makes much of a difference.
There is only one Boscov's in the Scranton area. If you want Boscov's, you have to go to this mall. There are a few other things that make the Marketplace unique. For the most part, however, you can get what you need without stopping here.
I do realize that most people, including myself, take the path of least resistance. If it's a choice between two shopping centers, and one makes you jump through a minor hoop to park for free, I'll chose the other.
I also realize the marketplace had to boot the freeloaders. It's a business, not a charity.
Bottom line. This might hurt-- a little.
