Sign advertises adult video, exotic dancers

June 18, 2008
By RYAN BRINKS, TIMES-REPUBLICAN
A new sign for an adult video store was recently put up at the site where a strip club was proposed a year ago.

The sign for Big Earl’s Adult Video also advertises exotic dancers at the Iowa Avenue East property formerly occupied by Tractor Supply Company.

Property owner Melvin Bryson refused to comment on the new sign. He has managed the Big Earl’s Goldmine strip club in Des Moines. It is unknown when the store may open.

In February of last year, Bryson unsuccessfully attempted to stop the Marshalltown City Council from banning alcohol sales at businesses that permit nudity.

The building sat idle until he took out a building permit for $3,000 in interior improvements this March.
