ABC: Sign states 'This is one of the only spas in downtown Clearwater not owned by a Scientologist'
abcactionnews.com [OCT.11.12] "Notice: this is one of the only spas in downtown Clearwater not owned by a Scientologist."
Wilkinson owns Berry Beautiful Salon and Spa. He said the sign's message will make sure he does not lose customers.
"They would assume that we were owned by Scientologists because of our proximity to downtown Clearwater," he said.
Wilkinson said he is not the only business owner worried about a negative association with the church and has the support of 15 more. He's working to form the Clearwater small business coalition which would offer similar signs to its members. [email@example.com]
