I worked in a large retail establishment for 6 years. Always a good laugh there if you looked for it!
The first year I was there, someone had went through a bunch of display items, priced them at a good discount and placed them on a prominent isle table. They then printed out a set of signs to attract attention…… ‘Dislpay Sold’!!! All four sides. Great Display.
Nothing there moved very fast.
I noticed the sign but thought it was my dyslexia kicking in but…. I kept passing that nice display and realized the sign was misspelled. Evidently the customers didn’t understand it either and didn’t buy from there in spite of the deep discount.
Over time as the opportunities came, I would point it out to management, starting the supervisors. Nothing happened! Market manager didn’t even notice when he dropped by.
Thought it was all over until a year before I left. the same signs appeared on a isle shelving area.
In case you don’t get it, the sign should have said, “Display Sale”.
