A person has stepped forward offering to build a new sign for Menemsha Fish Market after the store’s unique sign went missing recently.
Steven Galbreath, a member of the Facebook group Islanders Talk, offered to make a new sign for the market after owner Stanley Larsen offered a three-pound lobster as a reward.
“Yes! Sounds like a plan. We got a deal!” Larsen said in a comment on the post.
Menemsha Fish Market offered a three-pound lobster as a reward for anyone who found and returned their missing sign. The offer was made in a Facebook post by the fish market on Thursday, asking people to help in the search for the sign.
“It’s hard to say what could’ve happened,” Stanley Larsen, owner of Menemsha Fish Market, told the Times.
Larsen does not think the sign was stolen. Rather, he believes a strong gust of wind might have blown the sign down. Larsen suggested it could possibly have blown into the harbor.
Anyone who finds the original sign and wants to return it can contact Menemsha Fish Market at 508-645-2282, or at its physical address of 54 Basin Road in Chilmark.
