Ohio shop's classical music seems to cut loitering

Submitted By AP Wire Service

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP), Aug 12 - Shoppers and employees say an Ohio convenience store has fewer people hanging around and hassling customers since the business started blaring classical music.

Customers tell WBNS-TV (http://bit.ly/qWqMfK) that loitering has declined quickly outside the United Dairy Farmers location in the Columbus Short North neighborhood. Workers who've also noticed a change say the new music went on earlier this week as part of upgrades at the store.

Shopper Allie Beck says the classical music is loud - she can hear it all the way down the street. But she says it's an improvement over all the people who used to ask for change or bother passers-by outside the store.
