Confusing “Your” and “You’re” on Signs

Spotted outside a shop in Midleton, Co. Cork:
Signage #fail
And it's not the only "bad" sign you'll come across in the town.

The local supermarket is proud of its "customer's car park", which is suggests that they might not be in business for much longer or that nobody drives ..

Getting it right shouldn't be hard:

"your" = possessive

"you're" = contraction of "you are"
