Hardware store

I was waking to the Sunoco station this morning to get my car and passed by the old hardware store. It's a dump. Why don't the owners clean up the trash, old vehicles and debris. There is trash everywhere. Being either the first or the last thing you see when passing through the borough, it will not leave anyone with a good impression.
