What a 'Steals' in Chorley

A look at a Steals store in Chorley.


We had a nice walk around Chorley town centre yesterday evening and one of the interesting shops we spotted was Steals. It's got some superb signage.

What a shop front - that orange and black colour scheme has a really retro look to it

I hadn't heard of Steals before but looking online it's a bargain clothes shop with branches in Blackpool, Preson, Accrington, Poulton-le-Fylde and Chorley.

The Steals store in Chorley opened on the site of a former Littlewoods Clearance store last year.

What a sign

Check out the Steals Facebook Page for more information.

There's no I in Christmas

Spotted in Cheadle.

What's wrong with this picture?

I don't mind Christmas being shortened to Xmas, but I draw the line at this dropping of the 'i'.

Spotting a Luigi's pizza takeaway in Blackpool.

On my recent trip to Blackpool I was surprised to see the Pizza Luigi takeaway on Dickson Road!

Mmmm, Calzone

I've seen a number of Mario takeaways, and another Mario's on Foxhall Road in the town that features both Mario and Luigi on the sign in the window. But this was the first where Luigi was on his own.


Interestingly, Pizza Luigi is opposite Mario's!

The Simpsons Dodgems in Great Yarmouth

The Homer with no nose we saw in Great Yarmouth wasn't the only sighting of The Simpsons back in the summer of 2016. We also spotted the family on the dodgems.

'Homer Simpson' in Great Yarmouth

The chalkboard image of Homer Simpson that Emily spotted in Chicago reminded me of this 'Homer Simpson' we spotted in Great Yarmouth back in July 2016.

seabay in Scarborough

Spotting the seabay shop in Scarborough.


We love visiting the seaside and enjoy spotting bootleg things, so it was a double-whammy when we saw the seabay shop in Scarborough's South Bay!

Malt Disley!

Malt Disley - a Micro Bar and Bottle Shop in Disley, Cheshire East.

A few months ago we drove through Disley and spotted this brilliant bar/shop name. Yesterday I returned to get a snap of it.

Funny signs in Stockport

Spotting a number of legitimate businesses around Stockport.

On our travels we're always on the lookout for funny signs, bootlegs and parodies. Living in Stockport we don't often have to look that far.

Here are a few of the gangster-related signs and business names we've seen.

I recognise that font

One of my all-time favourite bootleg takeaways is Instascran in Heaviley, Stockport.

Legal Food in Lincoln

We had a brilliant weekend away in Lincoln and it's always nice to explore a new place. While having a wander down the High Street on Saturday we spotted this bizarre business name at a Chinese Takeaway!
