An adult store is raising some major controversy in the town of Tarboro in Edgecombe County.
Community leaders held a protest outside of the yet to be opened Majestic Adult Center. The store is located in the middle of downtown Tarboro, an area known for its diners and small family-oriented shops. The store is also located across the street from a church and around the corner from a day care center.
The owner of the day care center is among those outraged by the store and is prepared to fight to have it removed from the neighborhood .
The town hopes to pass an ordinance on April 14th, creating distance requirements for adult stores.
The store's owner did not return calls seeking comment.
