Deja Vu Showgirls Strip Club To Become Boys & Girls Club In Ohio

It's a place where people go to socialize, engage in extra-curricular activities, and have fun.

Now it's going to be a Boys & Girls Club.

A former strip club in Ohio was purchased by a Union Township community improvement organization on Nov. 8, and now it'll house a Boys & Girls Club of America, according to Cincinnati.com

The Deja Vu strip club closed down in December of 2011, according to Fox 19.

Club representatives want to strip the building of its clothing-optional past.

"It’s a wonderful opportunity to turn a building that once had a very negative connotation into such a positive thing," Jilly Cochran, executive director of the Boys & Girls Club of Clermont County, told Cincinnati.com.

The downside that one resident saw is the loss of tax revenue because the Boys & Girl's Club has a non-profit status.

The Boys & Girls Club provides young people in need "A safe place to learn and grow, ongoing relationships with caring, adult professionals, life-enhancing programs and character development experiences," according to its website.
