There's an Indian takeaway in Exeter called Argee Bhargee, and another Walter Wall floorings!

Fish shop in Paignton called the Fish Plaice.

One I remember in Wolverhampton called Chish & Fips.

There was a few hairdresser shop puns in a book which Terry Pratchett & Neil Gaiman wrote (Good Omens): 'A cut above the rest', 'Mane attraction', 'Curl up & Dye' (which is also in The Blues Brothers film).

In Norfolk there was a letting agent who had called their office building Euneda House, and in Burton there is an estate agent called Paul Orridge, who never uses his initial on his signs.  Bet he loved his parents when growing up.

.....Oh, I nearly forgot. In 2000, when I worked in Ostrava, Czech Republic, there was a sporting footwear shop called Athlete's Foot! 

There's a chain of sporting footwear shops called that here in Oz.

 

Also, a higher-than-usual class chippy near me called The Fishmonger's Wife.

 

I've also seen Souper Salad, and Super Whatnot somewhere around town. Abra Kebabs is fairly common, and then there's Frisky Goat.  :dontknow:

 

Not to be forgotten: Pourboy Espresso.

Lady Sew and Sew a fabric shop/craft emporium. Boshers the builders - apparently they're actually rather good builders.

 

Porter Johns an Annapolis supplier of portaloos (British equivalant would be calling it Porter Loos).

Lots of good things on here for those of us in puerile timewarp. ISTR a curry house in Birmingham, visible from the Chiltern service, called Balti Towers. And, in the same vein, and full marks to them for "getting it", I think there was a firm of builders from the same ethnic origin, whose van bore the slogan "You've tried the cowboys - now try the Indians!"

I saw that slogan written in the dirt on the back of a van in Luton once. Now if anyone has been to Luton they would note the relevance.... :jester:
