Heck if I lived next door and had 20-30 people around talking and making noise all day, when I was trying to sleep (I work nights), I would probably complain too. The shop, may not have all the proper permits.
Now if the shop was in a warehouse or old factory, and if the shop was large enough that they could do all work inside, and store all the bikes and parts within the shop, and made sure they have all proper permits, then the officials probably wouldn't bother them. If they want donations, they probably should look into charitable status as well.
