Unfortunately, probably not much. Since a check did bounce, you don't really have a defamation case...although this is 100% inappropriate.

I suggest you speak to the owner, explain the situation and pay whatever damages he has such as a returned check fee to get him agree to take the sign down...and never shop there again.
