A turf war of sorts has seemingly broken out between this contractor and boutique owner in Bukit Batok West. One shop’s signboard now covers half of the other’s.
Here’s what a bemused STOMPer wrote in an email today (July 29):
“This picture was taken at Block 134 Bukit Batok West Avenue 6.
“The shop on the left is a renovation contractor’s shop and the one on the right is a boutique.
“The signboard of the shop on the left has been extended beyond its legal boundary and come what may the shop on the right has deemed this a trespass.
“Hence it erected its own signboard to cover part of the neighbour’s signboard that has protruded beyond its boundary.
“Anyway half a name is better than no name and so far there seems to be a cold war between the two shops.”
