Uncle Giuseppes’ Marketplace

Zach sent in this photo he snapped in Smithtown, NY:

There is only one Uncle Giuseppe. There is also a sign on the building that doesn’t contain any apostrophes at all.

    That’s actually correct, you can use an apostrophe on the end of a word that ends in an S to show ownership. It’s pronounced the same.
    i.e.
    Mr. Lays’s
    Mr. Lays’
    are both correct

    Sorry, Anonymous, but Giuseppe doesn’t end in S.

    It should be Uncle Giuseppe’s.

    This sign is a huge pet peeve of mine!

    They have simce changed a lot of their collateral (flyers, etc.) to correct the issue.

    However, when looking at their website today, seems they had the same person create the language here:

    Dear Swataz,
    One should not throw stones in glass houses. Since is not spelled “simce.” Not using spell check is a pet peeve of mine.

    Why would you waste your time blogging about an apostrophe on a sign?? The store has the most amazing shopping experience on Long Island.. there food is great!
