Llisa Lewis, general manager of TCU Bookstore, looks out the window at the parking lot in front of the store. All 152 parking slots are filled.
When she looks in the store, there are only 15 customers.
The TCU Bookstore is just one of the businesses around campus constantly struggling with some students to keep its parking lots open for customers so they don’t lose business. In the constant search for parking close to classes, these businesses are often the ones suffering, Lewis said.
