A Chick-fil-A in Alabama has found itself in the midst of a battle — for the best sign.
Jeff Dennis Jewelers in Gardendale, Alabama, has started a “sign war” with a nearby Chick-fil-A that has turned into a hilarious back and forth between the two establishments.
The jewelry store threw down the gauntlet last week when it posted a picture of its digital sign advertising its new drive-thru window on Facebook.

“Our drive thru is faster than Chick-fil-A’s,” the sign said, according to the picture.
Jeff Dennis Jewelers captioned the photo: “1,2,3,4 I declare a sign war.”
It didn’t take long for the Chick-fil-A to respond.
A few days after the jewelry store’s sign went up, the Chick-fil-A had changed its own sign to say: “Overflow parking located at Jeff Dennis Jewelers!”
The fast food location posted a picture of its own sign on Facebook with the caption: “5, 6, 7, 8…… it’s time to retaliate!”
Jeff Dennis Jewelers even reposted the picture, commenting: “Well lookie here. They weren’t too chicken to play.”

But the battle didn’t stop there.
The following day, the jewelry store changed its sign again to say: “Gold nuggets are better than chicken nuggets,” according to another Facebook post.
However, Chick-fil-A appears to have already made its move, because the grass in front of the jewelry store had already been decorated with paper cows and the words: “Eat Mor Chikin!,” Chick-fil-A’s tagline, the pictures showed.

In a following post, Jeff Dennis Jewelers announced the two stores had signed a “temporary cease fire treaty” for the weekend, since the jewelry store and Chick-fil-A are both closed on Sundays.
As expected, the ceasefire was truly only temporary. On Monday, Jeff Dennis posted a picture of the grass in front of the Chick-fil-A, which had been decorated with a sign that said: “Buy Mor Diamonds” with an arrow pointing towards the jewelry store.
The store captioned the photo: “Chick Fil A, your lawn has never looked better. Yard of the week! It’s My Pleasure!” another nod to one of the fast food chain’s common phrases.

The sign war got so much local attention that even the mayor of Gardendale participated.
Mayor Stan Hogeland awarded the Chick-fil-A with a “Business Garden Award,” for its “Buy Mor Diamonds” sign, according to another Facebook post.
“We wanted to present Mike Holmes [the owner of the Gardendale Chick-fil-A] an official award for how great his new landscaping looks here with all the diamonds in front,” Hogeland told CBS 42. “We just wanted to do that just for Mike.”
