B&Q Welsh translation gaffe directs shoppers to US
Ceredigion shoppers have been told they may have to cross the Atlantic to find their nearest B&Q store - thanks to a Welsh-language translation gaffe.
A Welsh sign at the DIY chain's now-closed Parc-y-Llyn Retail Park store in Llanbadarn Fawr, near Aberystwyth, told shoppers "we have moved".
It then said "you can find...United States" - instead of "us" and used the Welsh for US, "Unol Daleithiau".
B&Q has apologised and said it would be replaced.
The Cambrian News took a photograph of the sign before it was removed.
"We're sorry for any confusion caused by the mistake in our sign and we're working to get it removed," a B&Q spokesperson said.
"You won't be able to find the United States at B&Q in Carmarthen, but you can find everything you need for your home and garden this summer."
