Just a little over a week until President Barack Obama makes his second visit to Sunnylands Estates. In June he hosted Chinese President Xi Jinping for two days of informal talks.
We are expecting a similar situation Valentine's Day weekend to meet with King of Jordan Abdullah the Second.
Just with President Xi Jinping we expect security to be tight and some local businesses are not happy.
"People just didn't want to come into the shopping center because it was so crowded you couldn't get in here to park, you couldn't do anything, so we lost some business absolutely," said Great Clips manager Katie Hoy.
Instead of shoppers, this parking lot on Gerald Ford and Bob Hope was full of thousands of protesters during President Obama last visit.
"It was very chaotic, there was so many people in the shopping center but they didn't want to come in here," said Hoy.
Hoy says Great Clips saw business drop 10% to 15% and worries next week's visit will be the same.
"Right now we are in season, this is our busy time, it's a little worry some because we don't know how it's going to affect us in our busiest time. This is when we make all our money," said Hoy.
Karen Esposito was hoping for a Big Valentine's day crowd at her restaurant Sabtino's.
"It's not just Valentine's day, it's a Valentine's weekend, and so it's even bigger and people are going to be celebrating even more than they ever have, like if it's during the week on a Wednesday or a Thursday. So that is going to make it even more difficult for us to be able to have a profitable weekend," said Esposito.
Esposito says last June protesters scared off her customers.
"It doesn't encourage people to come out and have a good time, they will go somewhere else," said Esposito.
Other business, like the gas station convenience store, saw an increase in sales from all of the protesters camped out in this parking lot.
"I don't like the fact that it affect us that day, but you know I think that in the long run when people are in the shopping center, it will bring them in here and notice us and eventually they will come back and check us out and get a hair cut," said Hoy.
"It's very sad because it's not a day that we encourage his visit he needs to stay in Washington take care of business and let us continue to do our job out here and make some money," said Esposito.
