Some Residents Fight Tarboro Adult Store

By  | 

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.
