Borough Responds to Risque Storefront

STROUDSBURG, MONROE COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU) - Condoms Galore, an adult store on Main Street in downtown Stroudsburg, gets a lot of attention. It's not what's for sale inside that causes controversy but rather, what's seen from the street.

"I mean, it's one of the few things that's able to stay in business for awhile now. So I got no problem with it," says Steve Truglio of Bushkill.

Gloria VanWhy of Strousburg adds, "I would hate to have my great grandson say 'what is that?' I mean, how do you explain that? That is just terrible."

Good and bad, people have a lot to say about Condoms Galore's ever-changing storefront display.

"Sometimes it's funky, it's cool. It says to use condoms. That's a positive thing," says Theresa Allen of Stroudsburg.

"It depends on how much you can handle I guess," says Mark Carbonaro of East Stroudsburg.

VanWhy adds, "how can they do that? I mean, it shouldn't be that way"

The Stroudsburg borough says it receives a lot of complaints about the window display, sometimes 3 or 4 a week. Now borough leaders have proposed an adult content ordinance, which would limit public displays.

Condoms Galore owners fired back the best way they know how: through a window display. It now has a picture of an outlet and a sign reading "tamer display to come. Stroudsburg pulled the plug."

"I just want their mannequins covered up a little more. I mean, nobody complains about a Victoria's Secret window display. I'm just asking them to add a bathing suit or cover them up a little more," says Tarah Probst, Mayor of Stroudsburg.

Stroudsburg's borough manager stresses the proposed ordinance is in its very early planning stages.
