A DRIVER who forced a charity shop to remain closed for a day after parking outside its front entrance has sparked outrage.
The reckless motorist abandoned his vehicle outside the British Red Cross in Kings Heath, Birmingham on Sunday.
The charity shop volunteers say the ‘stupid’ move could have cost them £200 in the shop.
Two notes were left on the car’s windshield, alerting the driver to the inconvenience they had caused.
A note said: Leaving your car here has meant that we cannot open our shop today.”
The other stated, “A donation towards the store’s loss of earnings would be much appreciated.”
A note on the shop door told customers, “Sorry, we’re closed because the car is blocking the door.”
Alex Sharp, the store’s manager, said the vehicle was parked there for about five or six hours.
He said Birmingham Live: “It could have been parked literally anywhere we could have opened. There was nothing around.
“They must have decided to park right outside – who knows why. It’s just so silly.

“We’ve had people park outside the windows for five or 10 minutes before when we’re open, but that’s a whole new thing. I do not get it.”
Mr Sharp said although diners could “push past” it could be a nuisance for customers or anyone carrying heavy shopping.
“We could have lost maybe 200 pounds. It definitely cost us money.”
