The Phoenix, Arizona store, Antique Sugar, has placed a sign outside the building to warn customers that they must wear a mask inside. However, it is the sarcastic ultimatum in the end that makes people talk.

“If you choose not to wear a mask, we respectfully ask you to postpone your visit,” says the sign. “We will be happy to discuss the effectiveness of the masks with you when everything is over and you will come to sell your dead grandmother’s clothes.”
Sarah Bingham, co-owner of the shop, said the response has been overwhelmingly positive since her sign started growing on social media.

“Your message on the door made my day! Congratulations to you and I absolutely love your sense of humor in responding to opponents. Brilliant !!!! “one person wrote on Instagram about the sign.
“Fantastic, by someone who struggles daily to keep a grandmother alive. Abso[lutely] perfect! Love from afar ”, said another, together with a series of mask emojis.
Despite the applause he practically received, Bingham reported to the store that he had received rejections from those who visited the shop regarding the policy.
“I’m like, ‘You know masks don’t work, do you?’ Or something about carbon dioxide retention, thinking it’s bad for you to wear the mask or that you look stupid with a mask,” Bingham said.

Although he admits that “nobody likes to wear a mask” especially in Arizona, where it is hot, he said “it is literally the smallest gesture we can do” as regards the fight against the deadly COVID-19 outbreak, which continued to have spikes in different states across the country.
“Some people are trying to make some sort of political statement, but people don’t die according to the party lines,” Bingham told KNXV.
