Have you tried calling or talking to the storekeepers? Were they willing to listen? If not, you might check with the "walkability" folks in city hall to get your pet problem areas on their radar. There was a front page article about them in Sunday's PA Daily.

This is not permitted under our zoning codes. I know they have had problems downtown with similar displays outside shops. However, I have sympathy for the store owners; there is huge competition for customers. They say if one store puts merchandize on the sidewalk then all the stores must do it to compete successfully. It's a form of advertising.

I hope folks of limited mobility as even I am sometimes would always carry a phone with them, and the non-emergency police number to report such barricades.
