I thought the same, but a few assumptions make that idea less tenable. First, what shop owner would accept and pay for a misspelled sign, regardless of the reason, unless he didn't realize it was misspelled? Also, what sign-maker would create such a sign without measuring first? I'm going to venture a guess that neither the sign-maker nor the shop owner realized the word was misspelled when the sign was first delivered and installed. Only after the original sign hung for a while was it made known, and it was too late or too expensive to change it. And only then did the lower window signs go up with the correct spelling.
