BEDFORD, Va. — A business in Bedford, Virginia apparently closed on Wednesday after President Obama won the election.

The six signs posted on Lyons Jewelers in Bedford, Virginia explained why the store was not open on Wednesday. The large sign shown in the photo reads the store was closed to “mourn the loss of the America that our forefathers endowed to us.”

A friend of the owner told the owner used his store to “vent frustration” with the election results.
