The slime shop is no longer for sale.
The city has shut down three locations and put the others out of business.article It all started in December.
I went to a local flea market and bought a couple of tins of salted bacon.
That’s when I found out there were some of those little slime shops in the corner, but not for sale anywhere in town.
The local businesses were shuttered as well, but the stores still exist online.
“People in the neighbourhood were going through a lot of change and that’s why we decided to open up shop,” said Laurie MacLennan, who opened a slime shop last year in the old Burlington Woolworths on Main Street.
She and her husband opened a shop in the same building where the old Woolworth store once stood, but now the business is closed.
They had to close two of their stores because of the cost of replacing the plumbing, said MacLennaan, adding that it was a difficult time for the family.
There’s a lot that goes into creating these slime shops, she said.
They use old-fashioned salted pork, and they’re not selling those items because it’s considered too salty.
We don’t sell any of the items that were in the stores.
We’re selling slime and slime products.
“The owners, they’re still alive and they want to continue operating the slime shop, but it’s been shut down and I don’t know how they’ll be able to continue,” MacLenaan said.
Her shop sells products like a slime that will make a woman’s skin feel smooth and supple.
This is a place where you can really feel comfortable and not feel like you’re in a place that’s unsafe.
Slime shops can take up to 10 years to open.
MacLennaans mother, Sue MacLellan, said that while she has no plans to reopen the slime shops because the owners are no longer there, she does want to reopen some of the old ones.
“I just wanted to bring them back to life,” she said, adding the old store was still selling items from the 1980s.
It was also the first time MacLensons husband, Dave MacLanaan, saw the old stores and the shops that were closed down.
“They looked like they were just being used up,” he said.
“It was hard to take them down because of their size.”
The City of Burlington says it closed three slime shops last year, but said the locations reopened this year.
As of Monday, only one slime shop remained open.
