No body wants to shop when surrounded by low-life ghetto trash, which is what happens when you shop in PG Co, even in the nicer spots. I realize that all of the trash may not actually hail form PG, but they are ever present none the less. Also the attitude of some of the darker citizens toward lighter skinned shoppers-I think that's called 'reverse racism' - is a real turn off and a good way to get customers to go else where. Oh, yeah -Public safety is also an issue in PG!
