Company boss spends six years searching for the perfect parking spot at local Sainsbury’s

Company director Gareth Wild has spent the last six years to find the perfect parking spot at his local Sainsbury’s.

Mr Wild, 39, drew up spreadsheets and listed all the available places.

He then set about parking in each and everyone.


After countless hours of research on each shopping trip his conclusion was bay C1.

Mr Wild said:

“After quite a few years of going each week, I started thinking about how many of the different spots I’d parked in and how long it would take to park in them all.

“My life is one long roller coaster.”

Mr Wild used a satellite picture of the car park in Bromley, Kent, then drew in all the spaces.

He marked where the trollies were kept as well as the disabled motorists’ bays and spaces for motorbikes.

In all, he had 211 bays to park in.

He said: “I do a big shop once a week with the occasional additional trip to pick up extras but a conservative figure of 60 visits a year meant that I could in theory have completed my challenge in under four years.

“Annoyingly a global pandemic slowed me down.”
