Why Tad’s Chic Dump?

Have you ever noticed our historic neon sign is only partially lit on the south side? Tad’s Chic…. Dump…. Wondering why it’s been that way for years?

The truth is, each time we attempt to fix the sign, the local folks grumble. It’s long been a landmark and topic of local humor and conversation. Like the time we took the sign down to be fixed and a temporary sign was installed with the message “sign in for repair”.

Each time the sign has been completely restored, the same lights go out. The ghost of Tad perhaps?

Tadschicdump has become part of our local community history and we embrace it on our t-shirts, key chains, magnets and now our web site.
