Marring the Beauty – Spend Those Dollars Online Folks

I dropped into Hubbards last weekend and with dismay saw more signs at the exit to the old highway. Where there used to be one or two signs about local business, now there are numerous ones mostly targeting travelers, but this fall I see new ones. Ones for roofing, construction, soil fill. So what does this say? Those who spent the monies and efforts to muddy a great place, where you are already at should have spent those on Facebook or Google ads to target people.

Hell I am already here and I do not need a new roof. As for supper, I am blind to your signs. Lets not mar our beauty by pandering to the fleeting eyes of a traveler.

This article appeared in the Lunenburg Progress. This particular exit resides in that county. Shame I have to be a subscriber to that paper to comment and provide my own insight.

Perhaps I would not be so visually offended if the boards had some great art such as the vintage ones I see at billboardsofthepast.com.

    And stick to the yellow pages for those (the few) who aren’t tech savvy. Road signs are ugly. .
    I like how PEI has done things – there are points of interest on provincial standard road signs and a business can have one road sign on their property.
