HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - Airport Exxpress has plans to reopen soon, according to a sign posted on its door.
The adult video store was shut down in October 2014 following a signed order by an Horry County Judge. Airport Exxpress was cited as a nuisance, said Solicitor Jimmy Richardson.
Judge Howe closed the novelty store for one year, which would have ended in October 2015, said Richardson. However, she told [the owners,] under certain circumstances she would lift the nuisance if [the owners] complied, he added.
Those circumstances included demolishing the back rooms and reconstruction, Richardson said.
When a business is deemed a nuisance and shut down, it only lasts for one year, Richardson explained.
"We can close it for a time being, and when [the business owners] wait it out, they can reopen," he said.
"But I do believe [the citation] has been very effective, and it's been less expensive to get the desired results, opposed to police going out to try to make an arrest," said Richardson.
