Clintonville Businesses - Don't judge a marquee by it's cover?
A comment on Yelp.com from someone named Heather... about the Pierce Cleaners sign reads:
"Well, don't just a marquee by its cover. I found them to be lacking in the personality department and completely unconcerned with hearing about how I was prompted to come in because of their funny sayings on the marquee outside."
Clintonville Businesses - Don't judge a marquee by it's cover? or Heather's "don't just a marquee by its cover" must come from the phrase "Don't judge a book by it's cover" ... don't judge a marquee by it's cover (do marquees have covers?)
I believe Heather is saying just because the business has a clever sign don't expect the employees to have personality or want to engage you in conversation... I guess they want to know if you have the ticket to pick up your laundry or dry cleaning... or what you want to drop off. Sparkling conversation... they have a marquee for that. Or a much loved clever sign.
Personally I had never heard the Pierce Cleaners employees did not make the cleverest of conversation while taking in dirty laundry or even when returning sparkling clean shirts and neatly pressed laundry to customers. Not a customer myself. I just love their sign.
Or did. Heather's was just a funny Yelp review... a sign of the times... Yelp.com does reviews of local businesses. The clever sign at 5205 High St. got hit by a car in July 2010. I understand the sign is being repaired and will be back out on High St. being clever again soon. A friend who uses Pierce Cleaners talked heard the sign will go back up.
Clintonville Businesses and those throughout Central Ohio...
In closing I want to remind businesses in Clintonville, Worthington, Westerville (thinking of a Westerville) business with a marquee), Powell, Dublin etc. "Well, don't just a marquee by its cover."
