You couldn’t ask for a better location to put a massage parlor.
It was in an Essington Road strip mall along with a vitamin store and a vape shop. So right after you got a massage you could walk over and stock up on supplements and e-juice. It’s too bad Sonny’s Delite is gone from down the street or you could grab an ice cream too. But there is a dog services business, a salon and an exercise place, so that’s good.
Not that it matters anymore. Even though the city council voted to give the massage parlor a special use permit, the place won’t get a business license.
Which is a shame. Yan Jiang, who is the woman who had hoped to open Y Massage in the strip mall, got past the zoning board of appeals and then went before the city council, and for a moment, things took a dicey turn.
