On June 15, 2017, Wade Hampton High School gained a new neighbor: Lidl. For students, what Lidl offered was more than just groceries. It offered free, accessible parking. With the new space for cars, many began parking in the Lidl parking lot thinking it would be a free alternative to the student parking lot.

Due to the new school policy, stating that students are not able to park at Lidl with the penalty being towing, there are major problems for students who do not have a parking pass and have to drive to school. Students and parents have been angry about this because now they are having to fork over twenty-five or fifty dollars to buy a parking pass for their students, or the students are having to park further away from the school. This creates an unsafe environment for the adolescents who now have to walk across busy roads to get to school. Senior Harrison Maiorana expresses, “I personally understand why Lidl wouldn’t want their parking lot filled with kids who aren’t actually entering the store. There are enough kids to take up that entire parking lot I reckon. It seems like it was only a matter of time until that wonderful alternative would have been drawn away from us. While I dislike the rule, I understand that it does open up an opportunity for business in the Wade Hampton area.”  Due to the implementation of this policy, one question many are still puzzled about is this: What is that empty space going to be used for?

Some individuals have been hinting that there will soon be a new hotel popping up in the vacant space. More specifically, a Holiday Inn Express will allegedly be built in the space. Yet, after calling other hotels to confirm this speculation, they said they have not been informed on any new hotels being built in Greenville, South Carolina.
