I was walking along Bank Street, the main north-south arterial in Ottawa when I noticed the storefront sign.
For all I know it has been there for years, but usually I drive this stretch of road so I’m watching traffic not store signs. The spelling error, which I presume has been there for years, just jumped out at me.
I though about going into the store and asking about it. Certainly I’m not the first to notice. Part of me was wondering if the error was left deliberately as a conversation starter, something to get people into the shop.
Of course I’m making the assumption that I’m not the first one to notice the error. That couldn’t be the case, could it?
