An apostrophe wouldn't go astray either.

Hey, give 'em a break. It USED to say 'White Drugs Only!"
Lol!

Jesus McSordid: An apostrophe wouldn't go astray either.


Presumably it's someone's last name, so if it's the Whites family, I guess Whites' would work. But if they've branded it as Whites Apothecary, then they're probably stuck with it. So at that point, the font size becomes a game changer.

Eh, the font is the same size across the street at the Blacks' apothecary.  Just helps avoid confusion.  Well, except from the confusion that comes from 98% of the population not knowing what an apothecary is.

The W looks like a stylized logo instead of a letter, but that's not really the problem.  People are buying potions from an apothecary and there isn't enough parking.
 
2022-09-25 12:52:40 AM  
Problem?
 
2022-09-25 12:59:12 AM  
Maybe add a "customers of" above the logo.

2022-09-25 1:11:15 AM  
Yup, it's too wordy. It should just read, "Whites Parking Only." Easy-peasy solution!

A basic Google search shows this place is in the Hamptons of Long Island which makes this all the funnier, especially given its  history in race relations.

Maybe the name of the business is just 'Apothecary' and you can only park there if you're a customer too.

That just made me remember, back the 90's my friend had a fun bowling team, they always has fun names like, "Bowl Movement" and "Good Head Pin".

If they refuse to fill my prescription on religious ground will they still validate parking?
 
2022-09-25 2:06:02 AM  
They should probably just call themselves "RX" on the sign so they can make it huge, save the fancier term for the front door and the main sign.

The White Apothecary is for the immediate loading and unloading of passengers. There's no stopping at the Red Apothecary.
