Walingford Signs

There is a convenience store in Seattle’s Walingford neighbourhood that has become known for its weekly signs.

This is from its website, Seattle Propane at Walingford Chevron, at:

Once per week. 4 lines. 17 characters per line.

In October of 2005 we converted our auto repair shop into an ExtraMile convenience store and suddenly we had a problem. It had always been easy to think of useful messages to put on the sign for things like service promotions and store specials and the like. But with the ExtraMile, there were no more cars to fix and the place was plastered with store specials.

So we decided to do something different.

That something different is to post signs that are witty, cheeky, flippant, philosophical and, above all, entertaining.

Following is a selection.
