Here’s a Valentine’s angle most weren’t expecting: The Love Library announces plans to open an “Express” store at 402 Tribune St. in downtown Rome — accompanied by “discreet delivery.” According to a media release from Drew Haynes, general manager:
“With the success of the existing Love Library store located at 2562 Shorter Avenue in Rome, GA, a brand-new express store, The Love Library Express, is opening in downtown Rome. The Love Library Express is the first of its kind inside the city of Rome, GA, located at 402 Tribune St. The store is an intimate apparel couples boutique store, specializing in merchandise consisting of lingerie for women of all sizes and shapes, sexy clothing, shoes, candles, lotions, massage oils, lubes, enhancers, massagers, books, magazines, tobacco products, and various other intimate items.
“In addition, as part of the Express store in downtown Rome, a new service is being developed and will be implemented very soon, offering discreet delivery Between the Rivers in downtown Rome.
“Building on the same policy as the main Love Library and Floyd County, while the online store offers a full range of adult items, the new store’s stock and trade … will comply with and exist under the current adult ordinances of the city of Rome.”
Haynes has submitted an application with the city clerk’s office but has yet to obtain a business license, says City Clerk Joe Smith. The city will need to review the proposed inventory of the store vs. the city’s adult entertainment ordinance.
