DANVILLE, Va. (AP) -- Sales are up at a store that sells sex toys, bondage gear and lingerie since Pittsylvania County ordered it to close in May.

Owner Trish Post tells the Danville Register & Bee ( ) that more people are coming to her store and shopping. She says they're showing their support by buying products.

The county says the store in Mount Hermon, called Shh ... Intimacy on a New Level, is in violation of the county zoning ordinance. County code compliance director Odie Shelton is allowed the store to remain open while Post appeals his order to the Board of Zoning Appeals.

A hearing on the appeal is set for Sept. 10 in Chatham.
