Proposal aims to build NH sex shop near church despite Manchester ban within 500 feet


MANCHESTER — You may understand a separation of church and state, but what about church and sex shops?

A Manchester ordinance states that sexually oriented businesses - such as retail and workshops - are not permitted within 500 feet of a church.

Sophia Raymond, a representing agent, has proposed for a variance from this ordinance in order to build a sex shop within the 500 feet limit of a church at 81 Manchester Street.

The only current sex shop listed in Manchester is Forbidden Fruit, located at 20 Amherst Street, which is just over the 500 feet restriction.

The issue will be presented to the Ward 3 Alderman on Thursday night to discuss the issue.
