Computer’s, Laptop’s, and Printer’s at Wal-Mart

Attached are some delightful examples from a new Wal Mart store in Grand Junction, Colorado. My favorite part is that the use of apostrophes apparently only applies to electronic items… “Sheets” and “Comforters” right across the isle were correct. Whatever.

There is a store in VA Beach, VA that is actually called – Just Laptop’s. How embarrassing for them.

Seriously, at Wal Mart too. Glad I’m not the only one messing up my apostrophes. 🙂

Mike says:

Yeah, SERIOUSLY? Why are they hiring signmakers without first checking their spelling and punctuation abilities?

I have to get a pic, but there's an aisle sign at a Rite Aid in Bellevue, WA that says 'Deoderant'. Seriously? No one caught this?

They have isles in Walmart?

I didn't even know they had any bodies of water! Don't you need a body of water in which to place an isle?

It's an aisle that sells stuff that will soon belong to your laptop, hence the sign "laptop's". duh! 😉

Mike says:

Whow! How could a supposedly professional sign maker make such dumb mistakes? Plus, doesn't Walmart* (F.K.A. Wal*Mart) use a uniform sign making process across the nation (or even the world)? So why wouldn't the signs be the same everywhere?

They didn't just make the apostrophe mistake, either. They errantly set up a redundancy/exclusion type of situation by listing "laptops and computers" as separate things, as if "laptops aren't computers."

Someone has got to contact them about these needed corrections IMMEDIATELY!

Thank goodness they're only selling the one blank CD/DVD…

Was it an isle or an aisle?
(P.S. Wal*Mart is now Walmart.)
