Letter: Patently obscene
The Trevor’s Toybox sex toy shop in the middle of downtown Pembroke is patently obscene and inappropriate. The owner could not have picked a worse location.
This establishment is in the middle of Suncook near several homes and other family-oriented businesses, including a local church and soup kitchen where families and children go to eat. It is also located within a 5-minute walk from the local park, Memorial Field and the Pembroke Village School. We must take into account not only what the local kids will have to see every day but also the safety of the neighborhood.
Shops such as this serve no benefit to Suncook whatsoever, except to attract unwanted individuals into the area.
