A SHOPPER plans to boycott Morrisons after she was kicked out of the Taunton store for smoking an e-cigarette.

Lisa Watson says she is allowed to smoke e-cigarettes in other shops, bars and her daughter’s school playground and hall.

“I couldn’t believe it – I was in Morrisons a couple of days ago, took a couple of puffs and was told by a member of staff to get out,” said Lisa.

“When I asked, ‘How come?’, they said there’s a sign on the door saying no smoking, including e-cigarettes.

“I was pretty annoyed, but when I rang Morrisons head office they said it’s company policy across the whole country.

“I think it’s disgusting. I spend over £300 a month there, but I won’t be going back – I’ll take my custom somewhere else.”

Morrisons is not alone in banning customers from smoking e-cigarettes – Sainsbury’s, Tesco and Wetherpoons are among national companies that don’t permit it on their premises.

A Morrisons spokeswoman said: “We want to provide a comfortable shopping environment for all our customers.

“We feel it’s right to protect those who don’t want to be exposed to second-hand smoke from e-cigarette vapours.”
