The vandalism came after the wake of the terrorist attacks in Paris. The bookstore owner says the name comes from an Egyptian goddess, not the terrorist group.
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. - A bookstore on South Broadway in Englewood was vandalized because of its name: ISIS.
Someone threw rocks through the sign of ISIS Books and Gifts.
The owner tells Denver7 that they have been hit by vandals before for the same reason. She blames it on emotions after the Paris attacks.
"We're about peace. We're about healing. We're about people finding their own spiritual power, and to have someone throw rocks at us -- how would it make you feel?" asked Karen Charbonau-Harrison.
The name of the store has been the same for 35 years and the owner has no plans to change it.
