A convenience store in the Short North has decided to play classical music as a part of several upgrades, and customers say it is helping cut down on people who loiter around the business.
The music blaring from the United Dairy Farmers, located at the corner of First Avenue and High Street, is loud enough to catch most everyone's attention, 10TV's Andy Hirsch reported.
"You can hear it all the way down the street," said customer Allie Beck.
Beck and other customers said people always seem to be loitering around the store, some asking for money and hassling those who pass by.
But since the music started playing earlier this week, the customers said they saw a decrease in the number of people hanging around, Hirsch reported.
"I'd rather listen to the music than have everybody out here," Beck said.
Workers at the UDF said the music is just one of the store's upgrades. They also said the music has kept people from wearing out their welcome.
