A third post spotlights social media trolls who have posted numerous anti-LGBTQ+ comments on the store’s social media accounts.

Held-Nordling told the station that the controversy had led to “a ton of support and love outpouring from neighbors and our communities around Chaska.” The shop is expecting such a large crowd at the Saturday event that they are reportedly planning outdoor activities for those who can’t get inside.
