B is for Birdie's, M is for Maggie's and P is for Pomeroy. If you've noticed the large sign on the wall of the Flower Box on Main Street in Westminster, you'll find 64 local businesses identified by just one letter.
The advertisement isn't new—it's been displayed at the corner of Ralph Street and Greenwood Avenue in Westminster for the past six months—but it was moved Friday to its current location.
"We're just giving it second life," said Sherri Joseph, owner of Birdie's Cafe on East Main Street.
Joseph said she and her staff at Birdie's designed the sign to promote shopping local.
"The whole theme is, 'Everything you love is downtown,' " Joseph said. "You don't have to go to a mall to shop for clothing, you can go to Artworks or Hickory Stick."
