In summer 2017 customers in Norwich, and across the UK, took to social media to give purse-friendly chain Poundland a lesson in grammar.
The high street store was heavily ridiculed for selling a decorative sign containing a big error.
Photos of the item, a purple glass plaque proclaiming: 'DREAMS: Believe you can and your halfway there' quickly made the rounds online.
In August 2017, Twitter user @Duchess_Sharon pointed out that two different versions of the plaque were being sold in Norwich, one with the faux pas and one which used the correct 'you're'.
However months after this incident, the store is still selling the incorrect version, as shopper Neil Perry spotted today (April 11).

The version currently being sold on Poundland's website is free from grammatical mistakes.
