A New Hustler Store!!!Dec 28th, 2010 | By HGKing | Category: What's The Buzz?
CINCINNATI â€” Larry Flyntâ€™s new downtown Hustler Hollywood store has been given the green light by Cincinnati’s planning and buildings department.
The company provided documents to the city listing all the products it plans to sell at the store including lingerie, swimwear, accessories, glassware and novelties.
The city has requested a list to make sure that the store does not and will not violate any city municipal code rules regarding sexually oriented businesses.
The location of the new store is 1618 E. 7th St., just a few blocks away from the Hustler store on Elm street run by Jimmy Flynt.
The two brothers have are involved in legal battles over rights to the Hustler name. Jimmy Flynt said his brother is trying to undermine him by opening a competing store.
â€œHeâ€™s trying to open a store in Cincinnati, trying to put me out of business and squeeze me out,â€ Jimmy Flynt said.
“My brother,” Jimmy Flynt said, “He falls sickness to his demons from time to time and right now he’s going through a troubled time I guess and just trying to squeeze me out of the company, he and his lawyers, who are also my lawyers.”
But Larry Flynt said to open up another store makes good business sense because he believes thereâ€™s enough demand to support another Cincinnati store, adding that the Hustler Hollywood store in Monroe is his most successful retail outlet in the country.
Meanwhile, in related Flynt news, the federal judge decided to add the partnership standoff between the brothers to a pending trademark infringement suit.
The case will take place and be heard in Cincinnati instead of California, which is what Jimmy Flyntâ€™s attorney Robert Hojnoski wanted.
Back in October, a judge had ruled that the court battle for control of the Hustler business should take place in California, instead of Ohio.
Jimmy Flynt claims that he always was, and still is, an equal partner in the Hustler business. But Larry Flynt and his lawyers have repeatedly said Jimmy Flynt was an employee â€” not a partner â€” and that he had never played in any major role in the operation of the company
