‘Prank’ blamed for rumors of a new sex shop coming to town

The owners of a chain of adult stores had to “disappoint” residents of a town after rumors swirled that one of their stores was opening in a new retail unit. One of the general managers of adult stores Pulse and Cocktails has decided to cancel the chats.

The talks began after signs appeared at the unit in Darfield, South Yorkshire, saying a new sex shop was opening. Somewhat homemade signs were taped to the door of newly built units claiming there was an “adult store coming up”.

The poster featured the phone number for adult stores Pulse and Cocktails, leading residents to assume the sign was legitimate. However, Graham Kidd, managing director of Pulse and Cocktails, said the chain had no plans to open a branch in the unit, YorkshireLive reports.

In a statement, Mr Kidd said: ‘It has come to our attention that someone has put a sign on an empty shop window in Darfield implying that we are opening a Pulse and Cocktails store. We can categorically confirm that this has nothing to do with Pulse and Cocktails and is clearly a prank.

“Sorry to disappoint Darfield if you were looking forward to a local Pulse and Cocktails. We would love to welcome anyone from the area to one of our South Yorkshire stores.

Barnsley Council said they were unaware of a Pulse and Cocktails store opening on the site and no applications for a license had been received.
