Larry Flynt to Christen Chicago Hustler Hollywood Store

2011_8_31_hustler_hollywood.jpg Hustler opened a Hustler Hollywood store in Lakeview in the former Reckless Records space on Broadway and kingpin Larry Flynt will be in town next Wednesday for its grand opening.

The Lakeview East Chamber of Commerce made the announcement on their Facebook page yesterday. CBS Chicago reports the Adult Fantasy bookstore two blocks south of Hustler Hollywood recently closed and the Hustler Hollywood store is part of some major redevelopment on that stretch of Broadway; The Laugh Factory is moving in next door. But that stretch of Broadway seems able to support more than one adult store and it's certainly incongruous with the neighborhood.

Flynt will be in Chicago as part of a four-day tour where he'll christen Hustler Hollywood stores here and in Minneapolis, Cincinnati and Columbus, OH.
