Virginia business war unites communities

“Everybody and their grandma has gotten in on it,” Bohon said.  It escalated quickly, and then it proliferated. With the exception of those pacifist hippies down at Power Equipment Supply — who protested, “Make love, not sign war” — just about every other business in and around Christiansburg signed-up to join the fight. Each threw shade bombs at their fellow business owners. There were no rules of engagement. Everyone is fair game.  Businesses without signs are improvising. Even those normally above the fray are posting passages. 

Bridge Kaldro Music The sign at Bridge Kaldro music store that started the sign war. 

So it was game on. “After that I put back, ‘Yea, but your shoestrings never got anyone a date,’” Bohon said.  It started when Bohon put up a sign aimed at his shoe store neighbor that said, “Hey Super Shoes, wanna start a sign war?” The shoe store fired back with, “Our shoestrings are stronger than your guitar string.”

“I simply said, ‘Hey DQ, wanna have a sign war?’ They replied back within about 20 minutes saying, ‘You bet your glass we do,’” Trevor Cork said.  Since then, Cork said, the conflict has spread across the province. “You pretty much drive through any town in Ontario right now and they have a sign war going,” he said.  Over the past several months, this war has gone viral on social media and skirmishes are flaring up in such far-flung places as Listowel, Ontario, where Speedy Glass instigated.

Super Shoes “Our shoestrings are stronger than your guitar string,” the Super Shoes sign said.
