McKnight did admit that while they haven’t experienced any protests or vandalism over the last 12 years, she did say that when when the store first opened, they did experience a bit of tension in the community. Mcknight says she sympathizes with the new owners of the general store location that is roughly 20 minutes away from the BJ’s DVD & Lingerie.
