Pep & Co Gillingham selling unicorn top with spelling mistake

ByRebecca Tuffin

Spot the mistake on this unicorn top sold by a high street brand.

Jessica Keenan bought a cute t-shirt from Pep & Co in Gillingham High Street yesterday but soon after she made her purchase, she noticed there was a spelling error slapped on the front.

The text reads 'Unicorn always beleives in you', surrounding a glittery pink and purple unicorn illustration.

The word believes is spelt wrong - it should be 'believes' not 'beleives'.

In a tweet, the 21-year-old said: "Pep & Co Gillingham can't spell. Told the manager and he didn't care."

Bought for her 16-month-old daughter, Millie, Jessica's partner complained to the manager in the store, who allegedly told them to just take it back if they did not want it.

Jessica added: "I went back and checked and all the other tops had the same mistake.

"It's a product for kids so they should definitely get the spelling right.

"I'm not going to put Millie in it, but I did think it was quite funny.

"I will buy from them again, but I'll be sure to check for spelling errors first."

Poundland, who owns Pep & Co, commented: “Oops. We're sending the buyer back to skool.”
