Sure there are panhandlers and it stinks like garbage and pee but where don't you come across any of that downtown. Besides it isn't their property that all of that is on it is the parking lots property that sits above them, so blame them if it bothers you that much not Peterson's.
I have been stopping in regularly at all 3 of the Peterson's stores, Morrison being the first one for over 5yrs. now and I don't intend on stopping. Keep up the good work Mr. Peterson.
