The corner stores are not posted, but the entrances to the mall from those stores are.

I was just passing through Sears into the mall on Sunday; all the entrances to the mall that I passed through were posted (invalid)!

And, yes, I carried!

I always carry, one of the few places I'm very careful; about being made, I've heard they will show you the door promptly, and I'd rather avoid the confrontation, even though they are not legally posted and carry no real power to enforce it. :roll:

I did happen to catch a couple security guards basically running up an escolator, followed closely by 2 Bloomington cops, Kind of wonder what warrants a response like that...

They're there. But they are inside the second set of doors on the side walls in back lit light boxes like movie posters.

If I've posted this once, I've posted it a million times.

Here's your sign:

I really like how some of you know how to do the "fix" of these signs, etc. Some day I'll have to learn how its done.

Thanks, Scott

DON'T try that in real life. Not that anyone here is tempted but I saw the pic and thought it had been done with paper, a pen, and tape. It would be hilarious but I'll bet they'd detain you or press charges. maybe defacement or some such.

Wow, I was thinking more on the lines of Photoshop or such (which I know very little about), I wouldn't be one for defacing anything. About the time a guy was getting a chuckle out of watching someone else do a cut and paste job on the sign they may also get a chance to see that person hauled away for their "humor". :shock: :roll:

Oh, I'm plenty tempted. I doubt that attaching a piece of paper to their sign with a bit of masking tape could be construed as a crime. In fact, I have some lovely Post-It brand white paper. That's certainly not destructive. :)

If I was going to try that, I'd do it at Maplewood mall. Smaller pocketbooks and lack of their own police substation and holding cells ;-)
edit: and less likely to have video surveillance to be turned off at just the right time....
