The Fashion Show Mall in Las Vegas will be implementing a new parking policy during the Formula 1 Las Vegas Grand Prix on November 16-18. The mall, which typically offers free parking, will now charge $40 per car to enter its structure on November 16, with the rate increasing to $75 on November 17 and race day.
However, there is a way for parking fees to be refunded – by spending at least $100 inside the complex. This spending can be across the entire property, including at high-end outlets like Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, and Saks Fifth Avenue. Additionally, receipts from sit-down restaurants can also be used for a refund until 11:59 p.m.
A statement from property manager Brookfield Properties explained the decision, stating that the aim is to provide a convenient place for those who want to visit the Strip for the event but may not necessarily want to watch the race. Parking can also be purchased in advance through the fslv.com website to avoid congestion.
The reaction to the announcement on social media was mostly subdued, with some defending the mall’s decision. Twitter user @Mic_VegasSphere pointed out the mall’s need to prioritize shoppers over F1 visitors, while @Havein expressed understanding for the temporary parking policy.
Overall, the new parking policy at the Fashion Show Mall reflects the anticipated congestion and demand for parking during the Formula 1 Las Vegas Grand Prix, and aims to provide a solution for both shoppers and event attendees.
