I know Staples online carries them but not in the stores and the reviews was low from their site on the signs.

Where can you buy sidewalk signs?

Sunny, if you know of a gas station that has recently closed or if you know people in the gas / c-store line, you can sometimes find a tobacco company "curb talker" left over at these locations. These free standing units are usually left behind after the gas stations closes. Sometimes, the business no longer uses them for cig's, so they put the sign behind their building, or by their dumpster, just to get them out of the front of the store.

The tobacco company reps have little means or interest to recover them as they are already assembled and too bulky to retreive. Plus, they have brand new ones in boxes at their disposal to use in new locations.

But the pre-used ones are usually still in good shape and easy to rehabilitate. You can remove the legs (for travel) by loosening 4 nuts/bolts. Plus the frame on all four sides just snap open which allows you to put in whatever insert you want (without having any visible signs of its previous tobacco advertisement).
