All bringing a national chain to Ohio will do is drive out the small businesses that actually support events in Ohio. There is already a very narrow margin of profit to support these businesses. When that disappears, say goodbye to events in your area.

If you want precedence for this look at the effects Walmart and Dollar Store have on small towns. The little mom and pop businesses disappear, you lose out on things like being able to get a decent butcher and these are replaced with low grade products and poorer quality produce.
