Background: The owner of Cappy's pizzeria has had enough with kids destroying his property, so he's put up a controversial sign warning parents not to let their kids run wild. The move's unleashed a wave of fury from parents, who think it makes them feel unwelcome at the restaurant."As a parent I'm already a target because I have three kids under seven. I see the eye rolls. At Cappy's, there could have been a "keep Cappy's safe" campaign or something posted that showed a little more respect for parents. The signs have slowed down my patronage of Cappy's."
I guess "slowed down my patronage" means "I stop going there as often because of the sign". I 'd like to know if it's an expression you'd use in this kind of context.
