Morrisons backtracks on school children store ban

A poster in the window of the Louth Morrisons store which implied students from certain schools were banned from entering without a parent has been denied by the company.

A photo of a poster reportedly seen in the store’s window was posted in the ‘Move Louth Forward’ Facebook group and it reads: “Please note all students from the following schools are now banned from entering the store unless shopping with a parent.

“Louth Academy, Somercotes Academy, King Edwards VI Grammar. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause. The Management Team.”

A poster reportedly on display at Morrisons, which was put in the Move Louth Forward Facebook group, states that students from certain schools are banned from entering without a parent.

One person commented on the post to say they were told the ban was put in place by police “due to anti-social behaviour.”

When Morrisons were asked about the ban at the store at Eastgate in Louth, they said there was no ban in place now and would not comment on if there was one previously.

Concerned customers

A spokesperson for Lincolnshire Police said: “We have been made aware of some incidents involving anti-social behaviour at the Morrisons store in Louth.

“We will continue to work with local stores and schools to address this issue.”
