Brushstrokes Pleasures, an LGBT adult entertainment store in Atlanta, is expanding its space to that of its neighbor, The King and I Thai restaurant.
Located in Ansley Square mall, the new space adds another 500 feet this March to the adult store that sells and rents DVDs, magazines and books.
"We’re very excited to add 500 square feet to our Pleasures shop and will implement a new layout with new product in the expanded space,” said Mark Jackson of Brushstrokes in a press release.
With the newly added 500 square feet, the two stores — Brushstrokes and Brushstrokes Pleasures — will have a total of 7,000 square feet.
The King and I was one of Atlanta's oldest Thai restaurants. It changed ownership early last year.
Brushstrokes says it is the third-largest gay-owned and -operated retail business in the U.S.
UPDATE: The King and I Thai is not closing. According to a statement, the way that strip mall is constructed is in units, and King and I currently has two units. The restaurant is vacating most of all of one unit and that is where Brushstrokes Pleasures will expand. The restaurant will continue in its original space.
