We all know how wonderful open signs are. They save us the hassle of having to walk up to the door to read the business hours. But has anyone noticed that a new open sign has been taking over? The old "rounded rectangle" sign is steadily being replaced by this new "oval" sign. I, for one, welcome this change. As we move into the 21st Century, It's important that we do away with the obsolete signs of the past and embrace the signs of today. Still, there will be stores that don't replace the old signs with the new ones, and they may say they're just being practical and that there's no real need to purchase a new sign, but I'll know that they're out of the times and afraid of change. And I pity them.
