Kenny Be's Sign Language: Puff, the Magic Grease Monkey
Smokin' mechanics on duty
In today's competitive economy, small businesses must offer more services to a wider range of consumers -- and this Denver mechanic is providing customers with the best of both worlds. Storefront signage states that all makes and models of auto mechanic specialist services are offered to drivers, while "tabacco" products, glass pipes and accessories are available to smokers. Additionally, by mixing the spelling of both the English word "tobacco" and the Spanish word "tabaco," the word "tabacco" appeals to two language groups simultaneously! Old-timers are welcomed by the stated fact that the business has been around since 1980, while new customers are enticed with the fresh-start promise of a Grand Opening. The only thing missing on this storefront is a great motto, like, "We stop your car from smoking, so you don't have to."
