O no! The Countdown sign missing a letter

This week, one of our members from Dunedin listed an iconic Countdown sign for auction. The sign is almost perfect, however there is a slight problem - the letter O is missing.

According to the listing, the sign is from a local Countdown renovation. "It's all wired up and ready to go."

Sign

“Awesome for that shed [or] … Christmas decoration. A couple of small chips and cracks from when it was moved but works fine."

While we know this listing won't be everyone's cup of tea, the auction had 16,000 views from Kiwis across the country. The sign however didn't meet reserve when it closed.
