Art Van, a regional furniture store chain, is advertising a mattress sale on TV. They boldly proclaim that all mattress are 50% off or more.
Now, I just happen to be in the market for a new bed and mattress so I was very interested in the sale. And, having been in the store the week before shopping for a bed and mattress, I thought that maybe now would be the time to buy.
During my previous visits to the store, I was told that the Tempur Pedic mattresses are never on sale. But, I was interested in the Tempur Pedic mattresses, so I kept watching the TV ads over and over again. And, yes indeed, “All Mattress are 50% off or more.” So, I decided to check their web site.
Now, the Art Van website proclaimed in bold letters “All mattress are 50%** off or more!”. Well, I noticed the “**” at the end of the 50%. So, I scrolled down to the fine print at the bottom which said that Tempur Pedic mattresses were not included in the sale.
So, I guess that “ALL” is synonymous with “most”.
