Hart County Adult Business Reaction

The newest tenant to the Caveland Mall has people in Hart County talking, but the talk isn't positive. That's because of the product the store will be selling.

William Eric Martin, DC's Video, "A full line of adult products, novelties, we also have theater and peeps, of course. Videos, DVDs, magazines, just about anything."

DC's Video opened just days ago, but it's already gotten the two other tenants of Caveland Mall planning to moving.

Denise Van Dyke, Granny's Quilts, "I don't like the idea, personally, of the business being here. I'm moving but I want to stay local in Horse Cave on this exit. And I can't see where that business will do anybody on this exit any good."

But workers at DC's Video have a different take on the situation.

Martin says, "We're not out to harm the community. We're not out to do anything that's going to bring a bad element to this community."

The tenants at Caveland say they thought a doctor’s office was going in, until a male shopper informed them otherwise.

Mildred Edwards, Bon Worth, Manager, "He said, ma’am, it's definitely an adult store. There's movies there, there's magazines there, and there's toys there, and they wasn't kids’ toys."

Some people WBKO talked to say they don't have a problem with these types of businesses in a bigger city, but they don't want one in Hart County.

Sandra Folsom, mother, says, "Oh no. I don't like that. I got a 17-year-old daughter. No, I don't like it a bit."

But workers at the store say minors will be strictly prohibited.

"Anyone who walks through the door will be carded. Anyone under the age of 18 will be run off, asked to leave immediately."

Regardless of what the community says, the owners say their business is protected by the Constitution and isn't going anywhere.
