The scheme – which accepts any second hand items, even old magazines – is being run at three parking lots owned by Ivan Caraganopulos and his family in Mendoza, according to a recent MDZ Online report. Caraganopulos’s decision came in large part as a recognition of the financial strain affecting most consumers in the area, but so far he apparently hasn’t had cause to regret it. In fact, as a result of the overwhelmingly positive response from drivers, it has reportedly turned out to be a profitable one.
Tough times call for tough measures, as the old saying goes, but that doesn’t mean the dark clouds of economic hardship can’t have a silver lining. One for inspiration!
