Not a chance!!
Does David Black still own this chain?
If he does then I seem to remember that he tried, a number of years ago, to get a "farm designation" for growing flowers on the grounds of his Beach Drive home so he could dramatically reduce his property taxes.
Thinking outside the box has made him millions and I don't begrudge that in the least - but at the same time don't plead "poverty" to keep your buinseeses alive. There are millions of people in this country who neeed help far more than you and your businesses.
