Several people who work on lower Broadway say they have been double charged for parking at the Baker Donelson Premiere Parking Garage on 3rd street by Broadway, after many received dozens of charges suddenly sent to their debit cards on July 3.

Many Broadway workers often use the Baker Donelson garage to park, paying between 10 and 15 dollars every day.

One bar manager NewsChannel 5 spoke with  said they have debit card statements showing original parking charges that went through, as long as three months ago.  But he says two days ago, Premiere Parking charged him again for those parking fees - more than two dozen charges that totaled more than $300.

Those surprise charges drained the bank account Taylor Beasley, one of the bar managers at the Redneck Riviera. He says even if Premiere wasn't double charging people and they were simply batch charging them for parking over several months, he says Premiere doesn't tell its customers to expect a large group of charges at a later date.

“Nowhere on any of the receipts, no where on anything when you drive in there, does it say you will be charged one lump sum at a certain time, said Beasley.  “In this business, we learn to read the fine print, and this is exactly the reason why.”

NewsChannel 5 reached out both with email and phone calls to Premier Parking for comment on this story those calls and email were not immediately returned.
