Oh dear. Step forward in SHAME – Marks & Spencer *and* Waitrose!

So there are certain middle-class establishments that you smugly feel will somehow be immune to the Greengrocer’s Apostrophe.  That they would never sully their shiny packaging with extraneous apostrophes.

  1. M&S have always been terrible for this, but I’m very disappointed in Waitrose.

    I’ve worked on a couple of JLP projects, and they’re normally very exacting about copy.

  2. There’s a Waitrose entry earlier in the blog. I complained directly to them and they changed it very quickly.

  1. No trackbacks yet.
