Tesco staff in Bicester were left red-faced after revealing a rather personal issue.
Customers to the Tesco Express in Hart Place were bewildered to see the reason behind a short closure of the shop on Wednesday last week.
The sign, stuck on the door shortly after 9am, read: “Store Closed. Just for a short period of time. Sorry for incontinence.”
Responding to the picture, posted on the Bicester and Surrounding Villages Chat Facebook page, a Tesco spokesman said: “Oh dear! I have called the store but not been able to get through yet.
“They may be busy consulting a dictionary.
“Thank you for bringing this to our attention.”
The blunder attracted a lot of giggles online, with one social media user saying they “hope they get better soon”, while another called for a “clean up on aisle two”.
