Times have changed

When someone says "country store" I think of things like old cigar store Indians, sacks of grain, and soda in glass bottles. I don't tend to think of, well, this stuff:
A popular Vermont chain store has sparked controversy among customers for stocking adult sex products on its shelves.

The Vermont Country Store, a statewide chain that has been serving the region for more than 60 years, recently added vibrators, sex creams and "instructional" sex videos to its stock, causing anger among some customers who see the products as inappropriate, WPTZ-TV, Plattsburgh, N.Y., reported Tuesday.
I can't say I blame them. I mean, it's not like I'm a prude or anything, but a it just seems wrong to have a "Dildos 'n' Porn" section in a country store.
