Plaza 88 in downtown New Westminster, built around the already-existing New Westminster Station, wasn't open a day before the sandwich boards started to show up. At first, that was reasonable--it's an entirely new complex, with some tenants still to move in and finishing touches still to be made, and so sandwich boards along the path from the Eighth Street entrance to the SkyTrain platform are a sensible way to get passers-by aware that you exist.
It didn't take long for it to get ridiculous. The new Safeway is the biggest offender here. I'm not the only one who's noticed this, either.
