One Kansas grocery store put in a new parking sign for veterans. It’s labeled “super hero parking only”, which I think is very fitting. After the pictures of the parking sign started to make waves on social media, the store saw a large spike in business as people looked to come out to support a business who so openly support our veterans.

Grocery Store Puts Up ‘Super Hero Parking’ Sign (Photos)
The owners of a Kansas grocery store were shocked to see what happened to their store after they put up a sign in support of veterans.
A photo of a sign put up by a Manhattan, Kansas, grocery store went viral, sparking a big increase in business.
The America Going Blue Facebook page, a pro-police page, shared a photo to their timeline of a sign at the Manhattan, Kansas, Hy-Vee grocery store. The sign in the store’s parking lot is for “Super Hero Parking Only,” which the store lists as “Veterans, Active Duty, EMT’s, Police Force, Fire Fighters.”
The store reserves parking spaces for the brave men and women who have chosen to serve their country.
According to Mad World News, the photo of the sign quickly began to spread on social media, leading to a big increase in business for the grocery store, as people came to support a business who is so supportive of those who serve our country.
The Hy-Vee isn’t the only store with Super Hero parking signs either. Viewers on Facebook claim to have seen the same signs at grocery stores in their cities in other states as well.
One viewer commented with a photo of her husband in front of the same sign in Fairfield, Iowa.
“Here in Fairfield, Iowa too! My husband and I were so happy when we saw this!” Ashley Mackan commented. “Him being a police officer for a decade and it might seem silly but it’s a small step in the right direction. It’s like someone is finally saying thank you to all the men and women who protect us and have protected us every day!”
According to WOFL, similar signs have been popping up around Brevard County, Florida. The City of Cocoa, Florida, reportedly posted Super Hero parking signs outside of City Hall and the assistant city manager, Matt Fuhrer, says there are plans to add more at a municipal parking lot downtown.
“Certainly the signs generated a buzz immediately,” Fuhrer told WOFL. “We’ve received no complaints as far as parking space being limited.”
Brevard County Sheriff Wayne Ivey loved the idea of Super Hero parking, and decided that he wanted to recognize veterans in parking lots for every precinct, as well as the jail and th courthouse.
“We absolutely love our veterans and our public safety officers wanted to make sure we recognized them,” Ivey said.
He added, “You know hopefully other cities and governments across the state and the country will pick up on the idea as well.”
