Religion takes over for stripping in Bryne / News / The Foreigner

Another business closes. Not because of the difficult economic times, – unless the lap-dances were too expensive of course – but because politicians turned down the Red-Light strip club’s application for a licence to serve alcohol.

Goods and services

One may be tempted to think that this is just what used to be sold. However, the Norwegian Mission Society’s (Det Norske Misjonsselskap, NMS) second-hand goods arm – NMS Gjenbruk – has rented the former strip club in Bryne in order to sell items that are no longer needed, and other types of services, according to Jærbladet.

“People can deliver their surplus items to us, and we will sell them to raise money for the mission society. We would also like to see them come in for a cup of coffee and a good chat,” says Jan Rosseland, a member of the interim board of NMS Gjenbruk.

Positive for the surroundings

Although a coffee and a good chat might have been another name for used to be on offer by the strip club, Steinar Haugseng, – the surname being rather unfortunate in relation to the previous tenant’s business; “seng” means “bed” in Norwegian – the property’s owner, is pleased.

“After many short-term rentals (no comment, the editor) it’s good to have somebody who would like to be there for a while. NMS Gjenbruk will also stimulate activity in the street,” he informs the paper.

Speculation can only be made as to whether cleaning up the former club’s image by selling furniture, clothes, and sports goods, for example, instead of something else will help.
