SALFORD City Council is allowing shoppers to park for free on Saturdays during the run up to Christmas.
Selected car parks in Eccles, Swinton and Morton will offer free parking on December 10, 17 and 24.
Eccles Precinct’s multi-storey car park is included in the initiative as well as pay and display car parks on John William Street, St Mary’s Road, Irwell Place, Corporation Road and Barton Lane.
Car parks on Partington Street in Monton, Hankinson Way in Salford, and Church Street in Swinton will also be free of charge.
City Mayor Paul Dennett said: “It’s a small gift to the city to spread some festive cheer. I hope the free parking encourages people to support our fantastic local shops and give our traders a Christmas boost.
“I’d also urge people to remember to keep any Christmas presents or valuables safely out of sight in the car.”
