The battle over the store “Red Light District" in Salisbury is over.

The store which bills itself as a romantic superstore has cleared the regulatory hurdles which would have forced it to close.

It’s an adult-themed retail chain that came to North Salisbury Boulevard last August and was immediately hit with city code violations incurring $750 in fines.

City officials would not approve the Red Light District sign unless it qualified as an adult store.

The Salisbury Daily Times reports that Mayor Jim Ireton who fought the store said that the shop finally brought itself into compliance by hanging the adult items on the wall.

In addition, the paper says…the store decided to pay the fines and retain the sign instead of changing it.
