From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A privilege sign is a retail store sign provided by a manufacturer, with the manufacturer's branding on it. The signs were provided to the store at no cost, in return for the manufacturer's advertising on the sign.[1] Examples include Coca-Cola signs,[2] and painted signs on sides of shops.[3] Privilege signs are no longer popular with manufacturers or stores in the United States, and are slowly disappearing from storefronts in the U.S.[2]
