Walmart evidently has gotten tough on trucks parking at their stores, no doubt due to irresponsible drivers causing problems. I have used Wal-Mart 3 times to park without incident, but I definitely call ahead to a particular store and get the managers permission to buy some groceries and stay for my 10. If they say 'no' I call another store or plan for another day.

This is nothing new...

Many of the stores are required to prohibit overnight parking by local ordinances for noise and zoning. There are some stores I deliver to that have decided to prohibit truck parking for the very reason Don mentioned.

Again “ask” before assumimg it’s okay to park and find out where on the property “breaking” is preferred/permitted.

For the record, more than half of the 200 NorthEast stores I deliver to allow parking.

I didn't read through all of the replies, but as a retired NJ Police Sergeant, I can tell you that any owner/tenant of any property, residential or commercial, has an absolute legal right to allow parking or not allow parking. No explanation is needed and no sings need to be posted. If a property owner or a person with "rights" to that property (ie. property tenant, manager, assistant manager, employee, etc) asks you to leave the property, legally, you must comply.

As others have stated, leave yourself enough time to go somewhere else and go inside and ask. The worst they can say is, No....
