Foes of Grand Forks lingerie store want it moved

GRAND FORKS — Opponents of a Grand Forks lingerie store have started a petition drive, saying the store shouldn't be allowed to do business near an elementary school.

The Fantasy's store is preparing to open. It will sell lingerie, sex toys and other adult-oriented products. It's located a block from Winship Elementary and is close to a traffic light students use to cross the street.

The Grand Forks City Council is considering new zoning regulations that would prevent the shop from opening near the school. The owners of Fantasy's say they will fight the proposal.

Susan Lenhart of Grand Forks helped to start the petition. She says if the store opens, she'll move her daughter from Winship to another school.

A Facebook site opposing the store's location had more than 200 members Sunday.
