Capital Video Store Ready to Open Says Attorney Les Rich

NORTHAMPTON, R.I. – While the store windows are still covered in paper, a spokesman for the Cranston, R.I.-based Capital Video Corp. said the adult entertainment store should open on King Street within a month.

Lesley S. Rich, a lawyer for the video store, said there “was a lot of utility work on the building” that contractors needed permits for. “It’s a little slow,” he said. “Supposedly, it’s all set.”

An aqua-colored “” sign is hanging on the roof of the shop at 135 King St., but the windows are almost all covered in brown paper. There’s a notice that the former Lia dealership located there has moved.

City Planning Director Wayne M. Feiden said work is progressing outside of the building including on landscaping.

Rich said they expect to begin hiring in a couple of weeks.

The store is part of a New England chain that will feature adult DVDs, videos and magazines, adult toys and sex paraphernalia, but it will not offer private booths for viewing sexually explicit materials after the City Council in November approved three zoning amendments that restrict and regulate sex-oriented businesses in the city.

In December, the Planning Board granted site plan approval for the project, despite the objection by some board members to the proposed window design, which at that time featured scantily clad men and women, some of whom wore handcuffs and brandished whips.

City officials issued a building permit in February.

Two Summer Street residents who had sued have reached a settlement with the owner of the store in their neighborhood, although the terms are confidential. Michael A. Kirby and Lucille J. Stone sued Capital Video Corp., and the Northampton Planning Board in Land Court, maintaining the board violated city ordinances by approving Capital’s application to build an adult-themed store at 135 King St.
