Really, I’m not entirely sure why.
I think it’s the utter screaming obviousness of it. There’s no moment of wondering ‘I wonder what that establishment does?’ It’s just right there.
Then there’s the fact that once that’s out the way, part of my mind goes to ‘why would you sell empty boxes? It seems a bit pointless’.
But of course it’ll be for shipping or a storage company or something. But all the same – boxes being your main thrust does seem both a little odd, and a little amusing.
Or at least it does to me.
Either way – you can’t fault them for the clarity of their message. If you want to buy a box, you know where to come.
