INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — Residents on the north side of Indianapolis are questioning the location of a new adult retail store.

Adult retailer Hustler Hollywood plans to open next to a Chuck E. Cheese Restaurant. The company’s website says the Indianapolis location is “Coming Soon.”

Right now, the locations is a vacant store that was previously a flooring store. The building has no signage advertising the new tenant, only a moving notice from the flooring company.

Local residents and Chuck E. Cheese customers are upset at the proximity of a store with adult products, only a few yards across the parking lot.

In its permit applications, Hustler Hollywood claims it will sell less than 25 percent adult products, which means it is zoned as a regular retailer, not an adult bookstore.
