Head-shop baron shuts outlet on Costa del Sol - National News, Frontpage - Independent.ie: "MILLIONAIRE head-shop baron James Bellamy has suffered a setback in his hopes of opening a chain of the controversial stores in Spain.
The businessman has closed down his first Nirvana head shop in the Costa del Sol resort of Benalmadena less than three months after opening.
Mr Bellamy vacated the premises near a notorious clubber's paradise after pressure from local authorities.
Town hall inspectors and local police are thought to have swooped on the shop and taken away dozens of products for analysis a few weeks after its opening at the end of June.
The closure has left Mr Bellamy's dreams of expanding his multinational empire after a clampdown from the Government here in disarray.
He is now thought to have postponed plans for a string of new shops in neighbouring Fuengirola and the Costa Blanca resorts of Alicante and Benidorm."
