In response to the Medford Chamber of Commerce, various local business groups, and the city’s elected officials, Mayor Michael J. McGlynn has announced that parking will be free of charge on Saturdays only during the holiday shopping period (Saturdays only beginning on November 28th and ending on January 2nd).
Patrons visiting local businesses in these designated areas will be able to obtain goods and services without having to pay meters or kiosks. Business and Commuter permits will continue to be monitored.
The free holiday shopping parking encompasses all business districts/squares within the City, including: Medford Square, Haines Square, West Medford Square, Hillside Square and South Medford Square.
“I feel this will help to encourage residents to shop in small businesses throughout our community for unique holiday gifts as well as enjoy holiday celebrations in our many local restaurants,” said Mayor McGlynn.
