    You are looking for the reason why old customers are going to the new owners, be realistic does a sign stating "Under new management" really make them change their loyalty to the old company

    And if it does, then it proves that they were looking for something different

    No Chris sorry,

    I wasn't looking for the reason old customers were going to the new owners.

    The business owner asked me if anything could be done about the fact that the new owners had the under new management signage put up.

    I told her that I doubted it but that I'd ask.

    That was why I posted it in this Legal forum.

    I'm not a lawyer, but have been in business for over 20 years often dealing with contractual matters and I can't see that the new owners have done anything wrong. They've changed the business name and they've stated that its under new management. Both of which are correct. They're not pretending to be the old company. Admittedly 'under new management' could imply that it's the old company with new managers, but they've changed the company name too, so I'd say there is no recourse for your friend.
