MARYVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — A Tennessee restaurant owner has placed a sign in the window of her business welcoming gun owners, a move she says has brought in more customers and saved her business from closing.
Shiloh Brew and Chew owner Sharma Floyd says put up the sign after seeing a news account of a business being robbed after posting a sign saying guns were not allowed in the building.
The Maryville restaurant owner opted to go in the opposite direction. Floyd told WVLT-TV in Knoxville that “business exploded” and the response from customers was overwhelmingly positive.
Floyd says she doesn't want her sign to be a challenge to anyone. She's simply standing up for what she believes in.
