Sex sells my friend.

What you do is fix the six just like you have it in the OP and hire a hot chick in a bathing suit to flash the sign around.

You can also do fliers, put them at stores along with business cards.

God...too much to drink last night :S

Do it!!!

And if there's a large gay community in your area I'll take the job as the guy in the speedo holding the sign.

The hookers part is rather true for the establishment next to the shop. Not to mention the pole dancing school across the road.

I had that on the last sign, and the problem is that some one (me) as to constantly keep that updated. Cafes and Sandwitch shops don't have changing prices and low margins like computer shops do.

I would get a professional artist to paint the sign.

It would have 1 or possibly 2 scantily clad women in classic pin-up poses.
(nothing too racy. Just hot hot chicks... starting to take off their clothes.)

Wording would be, "The hottest PC store in Town" - Make the girls look like it's soo hot in the store the girls have to take their clothes off.

- "Also, services would be listed."

To support my suggestion.

Video - Breaking News Videos from CNN.com

If you can increase your Bar-B-Que sales by 30% with a plastic busty mannequin, certainly a professional painted sign will bring people in.

I might do some thing like that.

I am currently working on some signage for the balcony upstairs. Currently having a chat with some of my suppliers in regards to getting some high quality images.

I like it my only complaint is with the "now" in now open. I would just have open. For some reason it make me think why are they now open. what was the problem before. Just my opinion.
