Entrepri* (for Enterprise)

Let’s hear it for free enterprise! Black Friday shoppers everywhere must be relieved to know that this year they can get the earliest possible start on those holiday bargains. Several retailers, including Macy’s, Target, and Best Buy, will all open their doors at 12:00 AM. Finally, the 24-hour stores will have some real competition!

By the time you read this, it will be far too late to get the best deals. But there’s still plenty of time to find and correct the moderate-probability typo Entrepri* in your catalog. Doing so will take a little diligence, as limiting an OhioLINK search to English still pulls up 181 entries. Many of these are actually instances of the French “entreprise.”
