This store has been closed for some time. Forty miles south of Atlanta, I noticed this easily seen building while driving a busy parkway. I wondered, what is MAZE SOUTPOST? After some typographic scrutiny, I deduced it is Maze's Outpost. It astonishes me that a sign maker did not realize the lack of word spacing needed in this sign. Maybe it was a DIY sign made by the owner's friend or parent, still... no space between words? Didn't we all learn that miscommunication happens with misspellings? I wonder, was the unintentional, newly created word "MAZE'SOUTPOST" too much of a mystery for drivers to pull off of the busy road to discover this store? Could this be why the Maze's Outpost is no longer?
