A new business is coming to west Shreveport. But is it what the area needs?
Some folks are concerned the old IHOP restaurant on Financial Plaza is going to be a strip club. There is now a sign on the building that says "Hustler Hollywood".
Derrick Henderson is running for Shreveport City Council in District G and he says
"This is not the economic development that we want, deserve or need in Shreveport City Council District G. As your next councilman, I will fight for the development that we want and deserve."
Henderson notes this site is within site of Huntington High School.
But we did a little checking and found that "Hustler Hollywood" is not actually a strip club. It is a retail store that sells sex-related products.
