Just been down to my local store. Had a bit of a job convincing my wife that it wasn't a dating agency.

Sorry, should be ' there's'! There's a bloke in Bristol goes around correcting bad spelling and punctuation on shop signs. I sort of approve but then again...

Probably a local rep for the 'Apostrophe Protection Society' http://www.apostrophe.org.uk . Some of the examples on the site are hilarious and thoroughly depressing at the same time!

A shop near me once had a sign saying "NO NON CUSTOMER'S PARKING ONLY ALLOWED" i only went in there on foot to save the confusion.
