Worst Business Ever In Manassas?

By Greg L | 18 April 2011 | Manassas City | 16 Comments

After riling up city residents with an adult-oriented store in Manassas, you’d think these folks would try to build some bridges with the community.  Instead they try to start having wet T-shirt contests in Old Town.  You’d think they haven’t learned their lesson after trying to sell “Teenage Lesbian Hookers” DVDs right next to the place where children perform musical theater for their summer camp.

Some businesses think they can market themselves solely on the basis of notoriety,  being the worst they can possibly be and gaining lots of “earned media” that describes in detail what horrid civic partners they are with the community.  Maybe that works elsewhere, but in Old Town any effort to become the most hated enterprise in the city is nothing but business suicide.  It’s not like the old days where the Old Town Business Association is going to sit you down and have a “frank exchange of ideas” with you, but if all the talk in town is about how everyone utterly despises your behavior you’re not building your businesses into a long-term enterprise.

    Your City government is working hard to protect the wholesome social integrity of the city while accepting the Constitutionally guaranteed rights of free speech, not matter how offensive. This is a terrible “Hobson’s Choice” with no winners. Manassas has crafted a well researched ordinance on this subject which may well become a national model, just as our 287G ordinance on illegal immigration control has become. Neither of these are perfect, but they do balance rights and obligations of all parties and make it clear that those who operate outside the boundaries of decency or the law would do better to try other political jurisdictions.

    So where were the protests and City bans when Mackey’s had Cage Girl competitions? They wore less than what was being proposed for the wet t-shirt fundraiser, and it wasn’t for charity. What a joke.

    This was supposed to happen at Philly Tavern. Are we supposed to boycott them? Isn’t one of the owners of Philly Tavern on the BOD of HMI? Does that mean HMI sanctioned this event? Should we be boycotting anything HMI does, or protest outside their office? What about companies that support HMI? Should we make sure we don’t do business with them either? I think everyone in Old Town is a member of HMI. Geez, that means if I go anywhere in Old Town, I am supporting a wet t-shirt contest! Wait…who makes all those videos for the Old Town website! I’d better get off this site before someone catches me supporting KK’s!!

    The owners of KK can take their trashy event elsewhere to parade around a bunch of young women in wet t-shirts for guys to oggle at under the guise of “it’s for breast cancer”. I was somewhat a supporter of this shop but I am not anymore.

    It is questionable why anyone would think it to be a smart idea to link a wet t-shirt contest with raising money for breast cancer, other than just to draw attention to their business and get more customers. At the time the owners of KK’s claimed they would be good citizens in Old Town and not clash with Old Town’s image - but this shows how much their promises are worth.

    Do they hire illegals?

    Lets pick our battles.

    i would much rather focus on illegals than this junk, to be honest what’s the point of messing with a business that will most likely fail on it’s own. This stuff cannot be profitable, i would hazard a guess that they will go back to selling door to door like they did before to avoid the overhead of having a brick and mortar location. Like AmericaFirst above said, let’s pick the battles..this is small time and not of consequence and takes light off what the real issues are in our county. Let KK’s fade into the wind and let’s concentrate on the illegal alien’s.

    For it to be profitable, it would need to be in an environment like 14th st.

    Manassas may be failing in many ways - but its core residents are not the gutter dwelling denizens of DC.

    Lets stay focused on illegals.

    The scum in the White is focused - and not to America’s benefit.

    America needs to focus - and keep the red hot heat on the other gutter residents - the POS we keep electing.

    I dont know whether I am glad for the people saying “lets focus on X instead of Y”. For those of you who actually TAKE the time to get to know the Mother / Daughter duet of KK’s would understand their reasoning behind things such as the Wet t-shirt contest and their motive behind it, but, like those who are ’stuck in your way’, you REFUSE to open your eyes to the changing of times. KK’s is a GREAT place and a GREAT environment. I think it’s kind of sad to read all this negative feedback of 2 HUMBLE ladies who are living their dream and ALSO helping those women who lost one or both their breast due to breast cancer. How many of you that actually READ this know that they are MORE then just an adult boutique in that they cater to those who have suffered more then most of you reading this will ever understand.
    To the host of this blog, I URGE you to check your facts on what they sell in their store before throwing around the raunchiest titles you can Google. They are NOT trying to do anything they can think of to get the press, but I WILL say that there is no such thing as BAD publicity. Do take a moment to think of one thing: What have the TRULY done to become what you call “most hated enterprise in the city”? Is not NOT people like you that sadly try to make them out to be such? Oh, and they are not even CLOSE to the hatred your followers have for Comcast, so maybe, just maybe you might want to focus your lines of ‘attack’ else where because my two favorite ladies aren’t going ANYWHERE!! They are JUST getting started!

    What about the MVC Late Night Video porno shops on Route 1 in the Town of Dumfries and Woodbridge? I guess that is the kind of revitalization that Supervisors Principi and Caddigan can get behind…

    Why no love, or the MVC right across from Parkside Elementary school on Route 28. It is a fact crime has not increased because of this stores location. People, really get a life. My mother is a breast cancer survivor and I know for a fact she wouldn’t care where the money came from if it helped save one life. These ladies should be praised for their effort to raise money. I for one will eat at Philly’s this wweekend and stop in KK’s and spend a little money. I promise I wont rob or rape anyone or urinate on the street corner.

    While I’m not a big fan of things like this, it’s not because I’m a prude, but because it continues to sexualize and objectify women. But I am a big fan of Libertarianism, particularly in the belief that I should leave other people to make their own choices, as long as it doesn’t hurt me or others.

    I grew up in the West, and the biggest cultural difference I see between here and there is around here, speculating on and judging what your neighbors are up to seems to be everyone’s favorite pasttime. I mean, seriously, live and let live - if their choices aren’t harming you, why so inflamed? Nothing like a little “sex” to get the Puritans all hot and bothered, is there?

    There are plenty of things in our communities that *do* affect each and every one of us negatively, that bring crime, the threat of violence, blight, disease, wage suppression and unemployment, congestion - all quality of life issues that affect us all. And that’s only the beginning. The most hated businesses in our communities include those that continue to hire illegal aliens and/or abuse the H1-B visa program, to the detriment of us all.

    Thing is, to avoid being hypocrites, they need to have, say, a “wet thong contest” to benefit prostate cancer - featuring fat, hairy men, with teeny little thongs. Oh yeah, bet *that’s* gonna raise a fortune … ;)

    Liberertarianismist, well thought out response. I consider myself a strong Republican but the continual insertion of religion into decisions that affect all of us is turning me off. People against the store will argue it does harm them because it will bring crime. My response is the City of Manassas has had two such stores in the City for many years, one right across from an elementary school, and statistics show the crime rate is no higher around these stores than anywhere else in the City. This is a fact that is undisputable.

    I’m from the west coast as well…we really didnt care much about what are neighbors were up to, it’s their business. Here everyone is a busybody and in each others junk.

    Nothing is stopping you from going back out west. Here we tend to stand up for morality and keeping our kids from getting corrupted. I don’t have to be a busybody when the “junk” is right out there in plain site, and being waived around for everyone to see.

    I suppose we could also have prostitutes on the street corners, and say that was OK becuase they are giving up half their fee for prostate cancer research.
