Shoppers and employees say an Ohio convenience store has fewer people hanging around and hassling customers since the business started blaring classical music.

Customers told WBNS-TV that loitering has declined quickly outside the United Dairy Farmers shop in the Columbus Short North neighbourhood.

Workers who've also noticed a change said the new music went on earlier this week as part of upgrades at the store.

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