Supermarket drives away trouble with classical music!
The soothing tones of classical music have a rather different effect on the hooded younger generation. I must admit I am a classical music fan, but there is just one composer that leaves me cold...Richard Wagner
A Northamptonshire (UK) supermarket says Vivaldi and Tchaikovsky are helping it to stop troublemakers hanging around outside its store.
Staff at Higham Ferrers Co-op broadcast taped classical music on speakers outside the shop to deter groups of people they think might cause trouble.
The top tracks the Co-op believes are guaranteed to move on troublemakers are The Preludes of Liszt, pieces from Tchaikovsky's Swan Lake, Deux Morceaux and Sleeping Beauty, numbers from Vivaldi's Concerto No. 8 and The Four Seasons, Mozart Sym No.40, Rossini - Figaro, Bellini's "Casta diva" from Norma and Bach's Violin Concerto in E major
The Co-op's 2,300 food stores enjoyed a 4.7 per cent like-for-like sales rise during the first half of the year.
