    SANFORD, Fla. —
    Several businesses in Sanford said they've been suffering ever since the start of the George Zimmerman trial.

    They said business hasn't gotten any better after the verdict.

    Theo Hollerbach, owner of the Willow Tree Cafe, said business was growing over the last 12 years the café has been in the same downtown "For the last eight weeks, six to eight weeks, we've seen a major downturn in business," Hollerbach said.

    Hollerbach said sales are down almost 10 percent.

    He said customers have been cancelling reservations ever since the start of the Zimmerman trial.

    Well, duh.
    Between Zimmerman and Casey Anthony, Florida has become a paradise for child murderers.
    Gee, I wonder why no one wants to spend their money there? :thinking:

    We should support black owned businesses if there are any in Florida.
