no "profits" here


I must say, the quotation marks here are less eerie than the coercive/comforting tone of the note. Feel free to spend your meager funds here all the time. Thanks... (and thanks for the submission, Amber.)

I think that's an appropriate use of quotation marks. They probably raised prices so that they could "lower" them to more than they were prior to the price hike.

I do find it oddly comforting.

Well, prices, I suppose, could be said to be greater of lesser, whereas low (or high) could be considered a description of height. So they may be saying that the prices could be listed closer to the ground.

" I love this blog, it hits the nail on the "head".

I do find the whole note very confusing. Was there a time when people weren't invited to come often? How high did the prices used to be, since they were so intimidating?

Ok, I understnad that this isn't a "spelling" blog - but has no one caught on to the fact that on that giant sign there is a rather large misspelled word. Hmm...figured someone would have caught that...

By the way - possible has two s's, not one
