BRONXVILLE, N.Y. – The owner of Topps Wine and Liquor in Bronxville has come up with a unique way to combat the pesky parking tickets that plague the village.

Beginning Thursday, employees at the liquor store will carry change dispensers on their belts to distribute quarters to shoppers so they can feed the parking meters.

The quarters will be offered for free, and no purchase is necessary to participate in the program. It will be in place through Easter but may continue longer, depending on the response from residents and shoppers.

R. Heath Lachman, owner of Topps Bakery , purchased the liquor store in October and gave the location a facelift, making renovations and adding a piano.

The idea was to boost the local economy in the village and to draw more shoppers who otherwise might stay away to avoid the meters, Lachman said.

“Parking fees and fines in Bronxville have become a challenge we frequently hear about from the public,” he said. “We never want folks who were going to stop and shop in Bronxville to be discouraged for fear they might get a parking ticket. Giving out change to help them feed the meter is a small contribution we can make.”
