TONOPAH, Nev. (AP) — A clown-themed motel is for sale in rural Nevada, with the owner insisting the 600 clown figurines, mannequins and paintings, and his employees, get to stay.
After 22 years, the Clown Motel owner Bob Perchetti says it is time to find someone else to look after the clown figurines, mannequins and paintings spread throughout the building in Tonopah, about 250 miles northwest of Las Vegas.
The 79-year-old Perchetti said he is ready to “enjoy some free time” with his wife, five daughters, three sons and 14 grandchildren.
Perchetti told the Las Vegas Review-Journal that he hopes to sell the motel in a month, but he is insistent the clowns stay.
“I'm not going to let them change the clown motif,” he said. “That's going to be part of the contract.”
