Sign wavers are tacky and reek of desperation. They've never succeeded in getting me to patronize a business and usually have the opposite outcome. Had I seen this prior to my visit last week I likely would not have gone.
If the Lake Edge Seafood Company is going for a more classy vibe (and with their prices, I assume that they are) a guy in a Halloween Express plush shark suit harassing people at stop lights doesn't seem to be the best approach.
Can anyone think of a sign waver that was advertising something worthwhile? If so, please share.
When I think of what sign wavers are usually advertising the list is short...
sketchy electronics sales at convention centers
fly by night tax preparation services
going out of business sales
cheap pizza chains
Also: those quickie oil change places.
