COLUMBUS — Even though community groups remain upset about a Hustler Hollywood store opening in Clintonville, Ohio, the store is expected to open soon because of a zoning quirk.
Larry Flynt, a former resident of Bexley, Ohio, and publisher of Hustler magazine, plans to open the Hustler Hollywood retail store soon on the site of a former Tan Pro store.
Columbus officials say residents have little choice but to watch and wait, because the shop has skirted zoning restrictions. It all depends on how much merchandise it plans to have on shelf space or display pertaining to adult material. The merchandise mix could avoid running afoul of city zoning rules.
