ClOSED? C'mon!

The store owner who wrote this sign apologizes for the inconvenience they may have caused us by relocating their business around the corner, but he failed to apologize for the inconvenience of being confused by lowercase L's written to look like uppercase i's. This store on 7th Avenue here in Park Slope ClOSED in November, but opened a can of lowercase L worms in the process. It even looks like the uppercase L in PLACE was an afterthought, a feable attempt to squeeze in the L's base after it had already been written in the lower case.

And I may be off topic here, but "C'MON"! Is that really a left parenthesis to encompass "Mon, Tues, Wed Nov 6, 7, 8"? Because that parenthesis looks exactly like the C in ClOSED. Also, if it is supposed to be a left parenthesis, then the author is missing a final right parenthesis after "(6, 7, 8)", leaving the outer parentheses unClOSED.

I don't think I'll be venturing around the corner to see what they have in store.
