Va. store owner closes for day to mourn election outcome
Posted by Staff
The Daily Caller reports:

The owner of a jewelry store in Virginia has riled up residents in his community by shutting down his store for a day to “mourn” the re-election of President Barack Obama.

“Closed to mourn the loss of the America that our forefathers endowed to us,” a large handwritten sign read in the window of Lyons Jewelers in Bedford, Va on Wednesday, the day after Americans voted to give Obama another four years in the White House.

R.T. Lyons gave employees the day off with pay on Wednesday but angered some customers in the process, according to WDBJ-TV, a CBS affiliate in Roanoke, Va.

“I will not be a customer again with this company,” Willie Thornhill, a 13-year customer of the store told WDBJ.

 But another customer was pleased. “I think it speaks the truth,” said Amanda Gordon.
