Shop's classical music seems to cut loitering

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

Customers tells WBNS-TV 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.
