    Hi,

    I saw a note on a store says " Store closed due to wedding." Shouldn't say
    "Store is closed due to wedding." instead?

    Can you explain.

    Thank you

    I am not a teacher.

    That's called "telegraphic style". You leave out as many words as you can, the way you would if you had to pay by the word, the way you do when you send a telegram. The verb "to be" can usually be omitted, as can articles. "I am not a teacher" becomes "Not teacher."
