Only Arrows for Cupid’s Love Boutique

Orangevale, Ca- Angry Orangevale residents say they will monitor Cupid’s Love Boutique to make sure the owners of the new store on Main Avenue live up to their promises to remove sex toys, explicit DVDs and similar items from their inventory.

“We are going to be out here from now on, protecting our kids,” Traci Piazza, one of the leaders of the neighborhood protest, said

Earlier this month, about two dozen mothers with children attending Twin Lakes Elementary School waved picket signs and slowed traffic, successfully delaying the store’s advertised grand opening. The store on Main Avenue is about two-tenths of a mile from the school.

The protesters jammed the sidewalk outside the store and circulated a petition that drew a large crowd of passers-by who stopped along Main Avenue to sign.

When store owners Sao Chang, Wilson Vong and Phillip Angeles arrived, they appeared shocked by the anger churning on the sidewalk and in the street. Chang said that based on the community concern, they will remove most of the novelties and DVDs they had planned to sell and open in a few days as a lingerie and shoe store.

“We don’t want to disturb this town, we just want to open a retail store,” Chang said.

Piazza said that around Halloween she was told it would be a bookstore and lingerie shop. Later a flier distributed in the area said that the store also would offer “exotic toys, adult costumes, lotions, DVDs and videos.”

“The list of items does not concern me as much as the people who will be coming to shop for these items,” Piazza said.

She said the protesters are particularly concerned because the shop is so close to the elementary school and right across the street from homes.

Chang said the store was inspected by county officials on Thursday and no violations were noted.

Blindsided county officials said Friday afternoon that the promise by the owners to limit their inventory is strictly voluntary. The store can sell the sex toys, DVDs and other items as long as those items do not take up more than 25 percent of the store’s floor space, said Ted Wolter, chief of staff for Supervisor Roberta MacGlashan.

“The business license was issued for incidental use. They are not considered an adult business,” Wolter said.

For that reason, the owners are not bound by the county’s adult business restrictions including a requirement on the distance from schools or similar institutions.

“We have requested copies of any other business license applications for Main Avenue or Greenback Lane,” Wolter said. “It has been an area of Orangevale that residents would like to see cleaned up.”

Cupid’s Love Boutique is not the type of business residents have had in mind, Wolter said.

Although full of inventory and seemingly ready to go, the boutique presents a blank store front with darkened windows and outside walls covered with white paint. No signs or banners advertise its wares or provide any indication of the type of business that will be operating there.
