The citizens of Minneapolis, in the U.S. mid-west, warmly applauded a new business venture there recently but the City Council took a dim view of it.
The extravaganza was a shoeshine shop operated by scantily-cla??? female bootblacks. The patronage, almost entirely male was delighted with the service, even though the price of the shoeshine was 75 cents a bit more than three times the going rate.
The girls appeared to be delighted with their new jobs. One was a former college student, another a budding actress and another a former legal secretary, who liked working in briefs better than working on them.
Just as the business was blooming and booming, the Minneapolis City Council cast an official frown on the matter and rejected the shop's application for a license presumably because of the costumes. One of the owners of the establishment, Norton Neff, refused to give in. He says he is now trying to design a compromise costume that will not compromise his business.
Meanwhile, disappointed customers are plodding on with dirty shoes.
