Deerfield Dry Cleaner Sign Nixed with Comparison to Trump

CD One Price Cleaners won’t get the sign it wants, with trustees comparing it to Donald Trump’s much-maligned sign in Chicago.

Another CD One Price Cleaners. The company was denied the signs it wants for its new Deerfield location.

It’s a tough time to be advocating for big signs, it seems.

Citing the backlash against Donald Trump’s large-lettered sign on his downtown skyscraper — as well as an incongruity with local ordinances — the Deerfield Village Board shot down a request for proposed signs at the new CD One Price Cleaners, TribLocal reports.

The owners had been denied their signs already by the Appearance Review Commission and appealed to the Village Board, TribLocal reports. But that body also nixed the signs, which are not in keeping with village zoning and appearance codes. The discussion cited Trump’s sign, calling the CD One Price Cleaners request a similar issue “on a much smaller scale.”

This isn’t the business’ first difficult board meeting. Early this year, local dry cleaners packed a board meeting objecting to the proposed business at 190 N. Waukegan Rd out of fears that it would put them out of business.

Yes, don't rely on that pesky data. Your thoughts and frustrations are much better indicators.

Deerfield Resident, every time you open your mouth, nothing comes out except gargled retardation and misguided vitriol. If Deerfield really had a pro-small-business agenda, they wouldn't have let the "walmart of dry cleaners" into town in the first place. If you knew anything about the business model of CDOnePrice, you would know that it's presence endangers the livelihood of the established family owned dry cleaners. And for you to connect the regulation of a big business' sign to Obama, who is probably one of the most corporatist presidents we have ever had, shows that you simply have no idea what you are talking about. Are you Dan Cox's cousin or something?

Gargled retardation? Hahahaha! Although I strongly discourage the use of the "R" word.
