Jewelry Store Closes to "Mourn" Tuesday's Presidential Election Outcome

The six signs posted on Lyons Jewelers in Bedford got everyone's attention on Wednesday.

"There's one saying shame on USA and Virginia. Oh my God."

The signs explained why Lyons Jewelers was not open. The largest sign told people it was closed to "Mourn the loss of the America that our forefathers endowed to us."

Another sign said "The president seeks my demise."

A friend of the owner, R.T. Lyons, tell us "He done it to show that he didn't agree and didn't like what happened."

Many people we spoke with were very upset by the signs.

"I don't think it's right," says Eggleston. "It's very childish," said Joseph Bede.

One customer posted a sign telling the owner he lost that person's business. Another customer says she won't be back either.

After 13 years as a loyal customer, Willie Thornhill says she's done.

Thornhill says, "I think this is no place to have signs in your window if you expect to do business in Bedford. I will not be a customer again with this company."

But some people agreed with the owner.

"I think it speaks the truth," Amanda Gordon proclaims.

James Higginbotham agrees with Gordon and the store owner. "He's right. The small businesses I look for them to be closing."

>>> The owner's friend says employees were given the day off with pay.

My business died Tuesday night.
I needed a Romney-Ryan win to continue and I believe the vote fraud machine of the demoncrat party stole this election.
I close June 1st.
End of a 20 year old business.

The war on women is a dem war. They killed my business these last 4 years. It’s over.

In my home county two major coal companies have announced that in December and January respectively they are closing down because of obama’s win and war on coal. They have had enough of his idiocy.

The local paper reports that democrat state politicians hope the president will change his mind on the war on coal-ha! Dope smoking half wits. He will double down on coals destruction.

Its going to be a cold long winter for years in coal country. But hey, those on Uncle Sams Plantation will be happy worshiping their new god the government.
