Spelling - on sale now!

Everything looks fine with this piece of English, for some reason added to the wall of a neighborhood supermarket.

Advantage To Leam

"Loaded with information
that will be to
your advantage to leam."

Hang on - that's "leam" not "learn"...have a closer look.

The translator may not be at fault here - most likely the sentence was scanned in and used OCR to create the tooling for the sign. "r" next to "n" often becomes "m" just as "c" next to "l" often becomes "d" Vive human proof reading! lol
