The 3-foot Typo

The older Safeway grocery store in Louisville, Colorado, spent quite a bit of time and effort to spruce up the place to compete with new stores that its big competitor had opened.

Once it was all done they decided to trumpet their reopening in a big way -- with a banner across the front of the store with 3-foot letters for everyone to see.

Fortunately for Safeway, the employees there know groceries a lot better than they know English. This sign was proudly in place for weeks:

(For the visually impaired, the sign reads, "RE-GRAND OPENING".)

Do you think that has anything to do with the store being shut down completely a few years later?
