A crook goes into the store and

Days later, thinking the card has
been activitated, the scammer goes to
the retailers website and with the ID
number spends the gift card over the

: These metal poles are all that's
left of the coin eaters.

The town removed all of parking
meters in an effort to attract more
shoppers into the area.


It's all part of the ongoing
downtown revitalization project.

Folks who work at businesses
along Main Street say no meters is a
matter of convenience.

And they only brought in about
three thousand dollars a year for the
town... Christiansburg will try to sell
the old parking meters to other local
governments that might be interested.
