A sure way to end a business venture like this is to avoid going to their place of business. They wouldnít stay open long if enough people didnít shop there, as money is profit and thatís the motivating factors for these places.

We have a McDonald's that's not far from my house. The building is ugly, but it's in a strip mall full of ugly buildings, so that doesn't really matter. I'll go maybe every few months for breakfast when I'm going out of town.
