Truth in Advertising

So we stopped at the gas station on the way home tonight. This was the Shell at the intersection of Northeast Cutoff and Rt 70. I’m pumping the gas and notice there’s a sign flapping around above the pumps. It’s for Lowes.

(Yes, horrible picture. It’s cold and rainy.) It says “We’re closer than you think.” and below that it gives a location – the intersection of I-495 and MA 62. Which is all well and good, except that the closest Lowes is less than a mile away in the opposite direction, at Lincoln Plaza.

Not only are they closer than we think, they’re apparently closer than they think either.
