SAN ANTONIO--A small business owner renting a building off the 3800 block of NW Loop 410 says she's being forced to move because of raccoons.
Stephanie Anderson owns and operates Trinity Lace Wigs and Salon.
Anderson said she signed a three year lease on the building, but has only been operating her business for a little over a year. "I provide hair replacement for women who are dealing with life threatening issues, " said Anderson.
Anderson went on to say she transformed the once executive office suite into a private salon, adding shampoo bowls, and a washer and dryer.
"So I invested a lot of money, sweat, and tears to make this into a salon, " she said.
Anderson showed News 4 WOAI picture after picture of raccoons invading her salon. She says its happened several times.
The raccoons are leaving Anderson's shop a mess. She also worries about the health and safety of her clients. "Exposing them to the different things raccoons are known to carry, " added Anderson.
Anderson said she was never told about a raccoon problem, and has no choice but to leave the salon. She wants her landlord to pay her for work she's done to the building, because she thought she would stay long term.
"I would like reimbursement for the plumbing, and the electrical, and the things I did because I only used the place for a year, " said Anderson.
Anderson said she's hoping to work things out with her landlord. Our calls to the owner of the building have not been returned.
