The new upscale clothing stores are about to open in downtown San Luis Obispo. I got a good chuckle yesterday when I heard a radio ad on KVEC for the upcoming grand opening of Talbots. They mispronounced San Luis Obispo (San “Luey” Obispo) about 5 times.
With all the recent talk about how the Marketplace would effect local businesses, it would be nice if the chains that are coming into downtown would at least know how to pronounce the city. I’ll be keeping my ears open for the ads from Ambercrombie & Finch and Banana Republic to see if they get it right!
