The City of Charlottetown says it wants to work with the owners of an adult store to come up with a solution all sides can agree on.

Last week the city denied Taboo a variance that would allow it to operate at its current location on Euston Street. This weekend it sent the store a letter saying it would have to close its doors.

But the city says it won't force the store to close down until it's heard from the owners on their next step.

The owners say they're talking to their lawyers and will have a clear plan next week. Last week they told CBC News they intend to appeal to the Island Regulatory and Appeals Commission.
