DAYTON (WDTN) - Since September 2010, the soothing sounds of classical music have been flowing through the speakers outside the United Dairy Famers store at Leo and Troy.
While it's not music to everyone's ears, it is the convenience store's most recent attempt to attract customers and keep away crime.
"We did that just from the stand point of our marketing data showed us that it creates a more positive feel to somebody coming into the store," said Bill Bales, the Zone Manager of 41 Dayton area United Dairy Farmers stores.
Bales said they are now playing classical music at three other locations, the two shops on Main Street and the U.D.F on Wyoming Street.
"I think it's led to less people standing outside causing issues and more people coming in and enjoying getting ice cream or getting a soda and going home. A lot less rif raf," said store manager, Marlene Scales.
Store officials said the music has been such a success at the four Dayton locations, they are looking into expanding to other stores in the future.
