Convince Me

There is always some talk of having immigrant-owned shops put up signs in English, especially in case of an emergency. If the firemen, police or EMS can't read your sign, they can't find your workplace if there's a fire or robbery, right? The corollary is: Make sure you use the correct translation. I have a feeling that this is not the place to be convinced of anything, but, as it is a local corner shop, it's really supposed to be there for convenience. Also, those looking for a "Pone Card" might have found the only shop in NY that sells them. ;)

ETA: Or perhaps they are running a Cribbage Game.

Or maybe it is a place to be convinced first, and then which case, would you send your children in for a half-gallon of milk?
