The cries for justice in the case of slain teen Trayvon Martin was killed continue on Friday. The NAACP has planned another march for Trayvon through part of Sanford on Saturday, and some downtown business owners said they are furious.
They told WFTV the rally could scare shoppers away on their busiest day of the week.
The rally will start at a school and will end at police headquarters, which are blocks away from downtown Sanford.
Christine Johns was happy to see her first customer of the day, but it was hours after she opened her antique shop on South Park Street in downtown Sanford.
She said rallies and marches over the death of Martin have slowed her business drastically.
Johns said she's worried that Saturday's rally is going to make matters worse.

“According to reports, Sharpton plans to call for civil disobedience and economic sanctions against Sanford businesses if Martin’s killer, George Zimmeramn is not arrested.”
Oh, Idunno. i hear business is booming for some people in Sanford.
Move-on.org and the SEIU will be there too.
Sharpton is such a stand-up guy... jeez.
They shouldn’t worry, when the riots are over their insurance will put them back in the black. ;-)
I just figured out a way to clear them out of town for good. Put out a report of a wildlife truck overturning in Sanford which was full of pythons from the everglades and they are escaping into Sanford.
The store owners are not Korean but I doubt they will allow a Democrat liberal mob to ransack their place and just sit there. Sanford is a rough place and will probably be ready for anything after what they have seen so far.
The hoodie shops!
Hopefully their local, legal firearm dealer.

Sanford airport to privatize security screeners
SANFORD, Fla. Orlando-Sanford International Airport is about to become one of the few airports nationwide to get rid of Transportation Security Administration security screeners. Instead, the airport will handle security on its own............
Right now, the TSA has 65,000 employees on its payroll books. Critics said that’s too many and a waste of taxpayer money.
Follow the [evaporating] SEIU money.
Sanford is a little ways north of us. If I had plans to go there this weekend, I can assure you I would stay away. One of these marches is going to turn ugly and soon.
Ha! I’m not sure, the snakes occupying Sanford might look for a mate.
Yes. I was just thinking about that. Also, wikipedia has some interesting tidbits against Sanford I was just looking at all the way back to the 1940’s.
I agree. They are really used to dealing with wusses up north. This won’t be the case in Sanford.
As much as I'm not looking forward to dealing with TSA - at least I will be flying into and out of Sarasota/Bradenton when I head down next week.
Whenever I see any object, thought, place or person being attacked anymore I immediately try to find what zero and his ‘people’ would benefit from the attack.
“Supporters” of Trayvon will show up with hoodies. Supporters of Zimmerman should show up with KelTec 9MMs.
If I had a business there, I’d bring my shotgun, as well as my pistol.
Bussing in out of state “activists” wont work out well for him, or his sympathisers here in central Florida.
Even his OWS counterparts ran into problems with their shtick.
Right to work state, unique mix of age/race/origin demographics, and Florida still trends majority conservative/independent as opposed to liberal.
What involvement in the death of Trayvon Martin does he ascribe to the business owners in the city of Sanford?
It's merely the "liberal" way - when the cause suffers, even the innocent are fair game and they will be held hostage and/or destroyed in the name of the "cause". Those who say they "feel our pain" have no compunction against causing pain or worse.
Very well put. You are absolutely right!
