Craig, who had appeared at a press conference with Mayor Carty Finkbeiner on February 16 to express opposition to the store, had changed his mind and voted for the special use permit.

Council members who voted against the permit were Wilma Brown (District 1), D. Michael Collins (District 2), George Sarantou, Joe McNamara (At-Large), Frank Szollosi, (At-Large), and Michael Ashford (District 4).
