That is very impressive name calling, Mark. I don't think you answered any questions. My post was four short sentences. It shouldn't have been too tough to comprehend.
IF they are a retail business (please read carefully - I said "IF") I imagine they can sell any type of clothing they like, be it lingerie or head scarves or baggy pants or sombreros. I don't think that decision is up to you, no matter how mad you and your friends are. If they are not a retail business, then that should be relatively easy to determine once they open. You can't deny a legal, zoning appropriate business based on "I bet you are lying" or "I don't like those clothes". Do you perhaps think that every business application should be up for a public vote? Or a council vote?
Madison, they are NOT wholesale, any more than the Georgia Palace was a "disco". All this crap about a "legal" business is really pissing me off. You don't see this garbage in Dunwoody or Chamblee, well in Chamblee over here where everybody thinks it's Doraville, you don't see it in Tucker or dozens of other small towns in the metro, just Doraville. So I guess that would mean every other city in Georgia is "breaking the law" by not allowing trash. Tell me, where's your favorite store or restaurant on Buford Highway?

When the store opens, walk in and go through the motions to make a retail purchase. If you cannot make a retail purchase, then file a complaint with the mayor, council and QOL. If they sell retail it is legal. Simple.

You folks seem incapable of discussing a topic without resorting to name calling, insults and innuendo. From what I have seen, Doraville is indeed a representative democracy in the truest sense. You have the government you deserve.

More likely, we are STUCK with our government...unless we do something about it and efforts are under way to do just that.

Madison, I think you were either sleeping through civics class or just decided to put your own opinionated twist on what democracy is. You know, government FOR the people, By the people. Not just using whatever tactics you can come up with to sidestep the law for one individual.

That's not democracy....that's criminal.

The license they signed off on says "must be 100% retail in order to sell wholesale". Is it just me or does that make zero sense? And listen folks, don't let Stewie's girlfriend Madison upset you. they are clinging onto this "legal" thing because they obviously do not know that how a business affects a community is part of the LEGAL criteria that can and should be used when making these kinds of decisions. This is sleaze, pure and simple. They are trying to make us sound like prudes because we have a problem with more business that will help perpetuate the Buford hwy sex trade. If we were discussing massage or the mosque they would play the race card. As for "having the government we deserve" that's not true either for those of us who did not vote for Donna. As for Stewie, well I will never vote for Mr illegal backyard business. How the hell does he get away with that? Maybe we should start looking into that..........

Just about every business out there will sell wholesale to some degree. Chik-Fil-A sells wholesale to the local high school concession stand - should they be shut down? Home Depot has a Pro Desk - guess what they do there. Ditto Auto Zone. And on and on and on. The idea of ZERO wholesale came from certain former city employee who did not have a clue. The ordinance should have said no wholesale ONLY allowed.

I cannot believe you condone this business, wholesale or not. Past experience with this type of sleaze should be enough to keep them out. This is NOT good for the community and does not fit in with our present LCI and comp plan, period. Still raggin on Scott I see. What a shame that you live in the f****** past, the guy has been gone over a year. At least he had the sense to try and keep out the Palace, you know that wonderful "multicultural disco" drinking establishment that tried to open within 200' of a residential area. Despite the current planner and mayor's best efforts we have managed to keep them out so far. You probably wanted that to open too, we all love drunk drivers, underage drinking, drugs, gangs and murder to be the norm in our city.
