TO PATRONISE OR NOT: TOY SHOP DISPLAYS “NO MONEY PLEASE DON’T TOUCH” SIGNS

A toy shop located at China Square Central #02-20 displayed at least 3 of this signs.

The shop owner, Mr Tan informed that some of the toys were collectibles and they could fetch 500 – 1000 dollars. The main purpose of the signs were to discourage customers with no intention of buying from touching the toys.

Mr Tan said that his command of English is poor and he did not mean to offend. He wants the toys to be sold in mint condition because if there is any damage to the box, he would have to sell the toy with a 10% discount. Mr Tan explained that he could not keep the bigger toys in the cabinets so he had to resort to these signs.

As Mr Tan mans the shop by himself, he said he could not remind all customers to not touch the toys.
