The Hen Roosts Backwards Tonight

Convenience stores are a little less convenient in the West Loop these days with the closing of one of the White Hen Pantry shops.  I’m sure in the daylight it made sense to simply flip the old “White Hen” signs around in the pylon outside the store.  This was obviously done by a manager or some other person who only works 9-5 and didn’t realize that signs light up at night.  Doh!
