Wonder if any of mine are in that truck? LOL

What a childish, immature, insecure, idiotic way of doing things. Child's play to the max. What a loser! Hope he gets his due.

I hate seeing things like this. There is plenty of room for more than one haunt heck if we had more near by I would go to them too.

"There is plenty of room for more than one haunt"

I agree- we reciprocate with quite a few haunts in our area- (Dark Pumpkin being one of them)
It creates a good synergy for the all the haunts in the area.

Yes I had a haunt that stole some of my signs, not that i would say what haunt it was but my friend work there and he worked at Silo X. This is also a great complement to your haunt. But bad for your business.

I took the last business card for a haunt off the table at Halloween Express. Does that count?

(I contacted the haunt to let them know to bring more.)

That's actually pretty funny since they got caught, but very irritating if they hadn't been.

Something to keep in mind is that in some areas (mine at least) it's illegal to put signs up on a utility pole. The local power company has quite a pile out in their dumpster a lot of times. It's also illegal in my area to put them in medians and certain other places, as a Halloween Express found out. Flyers and signs are great, low-cost advertisement but remember you have to play by the rules.

This isnt the first time Land of Illusion has been accused of stealing competitors signs.

Glad they got caught this time. I will no longer be supporting this establishment.

I have heard rumors of other "dirty tricks" done by LOI as well but they are just rumors......

There has been a rash of flyer stealing in DFW for the last 2 seasons. I think its under control now for the most part. What they don't understand is another flyer crew steals your flyers just hrs after you stole the others and replaced them with yours. so in the end everyones spending thousands of dollars and no one is getting anY advertising as they are all in the trash. GOOD BUSINESS? NOT

I love living in a town where Signgate makes the nightly news, (not much else going on).
Ends up being a ton of press for both haunts.
