SUFFERN, N. Y. -- If one good thing came out of the flap over the neon sign in Rocco's Shoe Repair's window, it's that the Suffern community had a chance to rally around the longtime downtown shop, according to a lohud.com report.

The sign, installed some 60 years ago, no longer complies with Suffern's rules regarding how big signs can be in store windows. But many longtime customers consider the store a local landmark and took to social media to support the mom-and-pop shop, reports lohud.com.

In the end, Mayor Edward Markunas said the new sign rules were never intended to do away with Rocco's sign. He said the new rules were in response to a growing number of complaints of huge signs on small storefronts, according to lohud.com.
