COLUMBUS, Ohio — Hustler founder Larry Flynt will be on hand tonight to celebrate the grand opening of a new Hustler Hollywood store in Columbus.

Flynt, who will sign his latest book, “One Nation Under Sex," is scheduled to arrive at the Columbus Hustler Hollywood store at 7 p.m.

"Come down and say hello," Flynt tweeted Thursday.

A soft opening of the store is already underway while it is being fully stocked. Hustler apparel, memorabilia and souvenirs such as shot glasses and sexy board games are already on the shelves, in addition to an assortment of books.

The 14- store chain has locations in Cincinnati; Nashville; Fort  Lauderdale, Fla.; San Diego; Tacoma, Wash., Las Vegas; West Hollywood, Calif.; and London, among others.
