They should close shop now. They think it's about taking a stand??? No absolutely not, it's about offending allllll your customers and not having any business in your shop. Thanks to their posts on facebook and interview with WCYB I have learned, as I think lots of people have, that they are arrogant, think they are better than "Coeburn" residents, and will serve what they think is right instead of what their customers want! Get out of our town because you will make no money here now! The majority of people that I know says they are taking their business elsewhere. We took a poll "flower dud" and u lost.

really ppl everytime Coeburn gets a new place.... the f**king bible belt ppl want to shut it down.... well maybe between the sundays that u actually spend in church because during the week the things you do sure arent saintly... i mean maybe you will get this place shut down too... I mean hell we dont need jobs or revenue in Coeburn. If you dont like their place than too damn bad. Just dont go in there. I mean Jesus said to the other check but the christians around here want to sick their nose so far up ppls a**es that when u open your mouth we can see their face. Dont throw stones when you live in a house of glass you saintly ppl....

I just don't get why so many r offended anyway, half of coeburn was probably sitting on their couch taking or snorting a pill & drinking alcohol while watching the news. Talk abt a bunch of hypocrites. Last I checked (but idk since Obama is back in office) we do still have rights as Americans. One being freedom of speech, if u don't like it simply don't shop there. Its that easy.

I'm so tired of the cry babies around here. People that don't care to stop screwing long enough to make sure their kids are fed but have to go storm a local business. They probably were tired of all the front street hookers popping in and trashing up the place so they just beat them to it. Now all of the hookers are offended?

Maybe you should buy the hookers some flowers from that store while you are making your purchase with them.

I dont understand why a display offends the "bible belt" part of Coeburn but the intoxicated people or so called "hookers" doesnt seem to get this attention.People will turn their heads going thru Coeburn and pretend they didnt just see a member of their family or friends on the drugs or alcohol but notice a display?
oh well

drinking and pill are not the only thing that are in coeburn they are some very decent people in coeburn who are offended by such a very disgusting display of blating drinking and drug use. all women are not so weak that they have to pop a pill because they don't get a stupid flower.

I would move out of coeburn if I lived there, that town is what is offensive..Not a simple shop display. Bible belt really? Do you people not have a neck, turn it and look the other way. You all do on all the drugs, sex and abuse that takes place in your towns...I mean there was a penis drawn on the football field but you all are whining about a display...I guess it is expecting to much in this area, to see art as thought provoking, and use it to open a converstaion with your kids...I'm glad they aren't backing down and they will have all mine and my families business.

And one last serious question..Do you really like to see your towns main street as boarded up buisness as opposed to having some buisness in your area and bringing money into your local economy? Think about it.

Oh don't worry all the "good" people of Coeburn will leave that nasty flower shop alone. According to her she's too good for Coeburn anyway what with all the work she done at the white house bahahahAhahahaha! She can go back there. The other flower shops that's have been here forever can serve us. I don't want trash like the flower pot where I live. And if u want to be more convincing about posting over and over using different names u really should change your wording and wait in between messages. Pull your weed of a flower shop out of our flower pot and take it somewhere else. Your not welcome anymore.

No one noticed the display for a week. Couldn't see it for the hookers and drug dealers standing in the way. Not sure why anyone would want to put a business in Coeburn anyway. Those handful of good people don't spend their money there anyway and the rest spends their money on pills not flowers. You can't call it a flower pot if it's only growing marijuana honey. And true most women aren't so weak that they want to snort pills and get drunk if they don't get flowers on Valentine's day. But this is Coeburn, so one excuse is as good as any.

I just think they need to leave our town. Anyone that thumbs their nose at the residents and acts like we are blessed that they are here have it backwards. They are lucky to be a business in our community and the customer is always right. They should apologize all over theirselves for putting it up and beg the good people of Coeburn for forgiveness and a second chance to make it right. Not make excuses about why they did it and tell us we should be happy they are here. There are other places to shop for flowers in Coeburn and I will surely shop in those places as well as anyone that is decent which IS a large majority of Coeburn! The dopers and scum don't have the money to buy their flowers. So common sense tells you they won't last long now. Might as well close your doors "flower pot" because uve already dug your own grave. Your business is over. Proves you had no knowledge or experience running a reputable business. See ya!

The people having a issue and crying over this are just straight up ignorant. This use to be the Town Of Friendly People, but now I think it's the Town of Nosy, Ignorant, Retarded People. This is unreal, This town use to be so nice, I'm just disgusted with this place, yeah I think about moving everyday. Crying over a display in a flower shop, my God people are backward and behind the times. People should be mad at the Police for buying little Chevy Cobalts for police cars and now having to replace them. When I first seen them I thought that was stupid. What did they think, this was Europe? The Town has wasted 1,000's of dollars and people are crying over a window display at a flower shop.

What's ignorant is you thinking that it's ok for your children or the children of the community seeing YOUR window display showing a blow up sex doll surrounded by liquor and pill bottles and thinking that that's ok! Only ignorant low life here is you. Take your shop and leave.

Honestly, it's not that I have anything against the message...I just think it's a stupid way of advertising. I mean really, who the hell is going to overdose if they don't get flowers? It just makes no sense to me at all. I watched the interview just like everyone else and I laughed my ass off at the stupidity of it all. People are laughing because it is ridiculous! Whoever thought of this is a moron. I highly doubt the display will cause one person to buy someone else flowers but all of this attention will surely bring people in just to see it...that might help their business but not the display itself. Only my opinion though. I think it is the dumbest display I've ever seen or heard of.
And one last thought, why do they always chose the dumbest people to interview? Not just talking about this situation but in all the reports.
