Now It's "Red Light Lingerie"
There will be no Red Light District sign hanging in Salisbury.
Instead, the store on North Salisbury Boulevard will get be called “Red Light Lingerie.”
The change in name follows the city’s rejection of Red Light District because Mayor Jim Ireton says, it has too much of a negative connotation.
He says that’s especially the case since the city has tried to clean up the area that was the location for the infamous Thrift Travel Inn that had problems with prostitution.
The store sits across the street.
The city also wants to make sure the shop is not an adult retail store.
The owner says that it is not and meets the city criteria which, prohibits the store from having more than 20 percent of its stock being adult products.
