A BEXLEYHEATH shopper was left feeling "like the scum of the earth" after she was banned from a Primark store for taking a photograph of a Christmas jumper.

Jade-Marie Harman popped into the Bexleyheath Broadway store "on the off chance" when she stumbled across the clothing store’s latest range of festive clothing.

The 25-year-old told News Shopper: "I thought they were so cheap at £3 so I took a picture to show my friend.

News Shopper: a

"The next thing I know, I hear a voice shout ‘you can't take photos in here, it's against the law.’ "She said she was a floor manager and said if I carry on taking photos I'll be banned from the store.

"I explained as to why I took the photo and that I was purchasing the items anyway."

Following the brief altercation, Miss Harman bought two jumpers at the upstairs tills before getting in the lift to leave the store, shortly after 1.30pm on October 19.

The mother-of-three said: "When I got out the lift a massive security guard came up to me and said ‘you need to come with me for a moment.’

"Everyone around me was looking at me because they think I have nicked something.

"He said ‘you are banned from Primark.’ "I was crying my eyes out.

"There was snot coming out my nose in the middle of the street - I felt like the scum of the earth."

After an hour of arguing, Miss Harman eventually spoke with the store manager who apologised for the way she had been treated and confirmed she was not banned from the store.

The Keightley Drive, New Eltham resident said: "So many people go out shopping and think ‘I will show my mum that’ or they Facebook the pictures.

"I just saw this Christmas jumper with Mr Christmas on the front of it.

"I just thought it was a bargain and it was really cute."

A Primark spokesman was unavailable to comment.

What do you think? Should you be allowed to take pictures in a shop?

I get your point about when the item is bought but it's still their's until the item is sold. The copies are based on various designers collection, but there are enough differences to not infringe the copyright laws.

Surely commen sense would tell you not to take a photo

^^^^ Correct.

Also shops are private. You can stand on the street and take photos all you like.

"There was snot coming out my nose in the middle of the street - I felt like the scum of the earth." I spat tea all over my keyboard after reading that line.

Very odd behaviour from Primark. Many times have I took a photo of clothes to ask friends/family whether someone would like it or not. Especially around the Christmas period.
If Primark had online shopping, then perhaps not many people would take photographs of their clothing.

Primark are showing their goods on their property and they have every right to refuse photography. I have sometimes taken pictures in shops to show people and I have always asked first and have at times been refused, which is OK. The same rules apply elsewhere, e.g. offices and theatres, so this should not come as a surprise to anybody.

LOL Some of the comments.

Firstly 100% not a chav.

Also if you read the article again it say's i went into primark on the off chance, it isn't a store i shop in regularly. I just liked the jumpers for comedic value around the family at christmas. Won't be shopping at primark again that's for sure.

Seriously the whole SNOT saga was taken way out of context. Two security guards tried man handling me out of the store for taking a photo i said i was crying so much the kind of cry where snot comes out.

I wasn't upset about being banned it was about the way i was treated, it's disgusting. I didn't wana be put in the paper to be honest and could have easily just walked out of the store hung my head in shame and took the ban with a pinch of salt. But no, it was bang out of order i wanted to make people aware that photography in the store could lead you with these consequences.

Also why should age matter, yes im 25 with 3 children. I also have 2 dogs, 6 chickens, a 200 ft garden, a lovely 3 bed house and my partner works 7 days a week to pay for it all. To judge on something so small - people are very narrowminded.

Im off for a pint and watch jeremy kyle ;)

But no, it was bang out of order i wanted to make people aware that photography in the store could lead you with these consequences.

Also why should age matter, yes im 25 with 3 children. I also have 2 dogs, 6 chickens, a 200 ft garden, a lovely 3 bed house and my partner works 7 days a week to pay for it all. To judge on something so small - people are very narrowminded.

Won't be shopping at primark again that's for sure. Seriously the whole SNOT saga was taken way out of context. Two security guards tried man handling me out of the store for taking a photo i said i was crying so much the kind of cry where snot comes out. I wasn't upset about being banned it was about the way i was treated, it's disgusting.

There is a massive trend now called "show-rooming" where people visit a physical store, take a photo and then buy online. The smart retailers include QR codes (the little crazy patterns you scan with your phone) in their stores to make it easier to buy on line from them.

Seems like Primark need to get with the trend and also have a decent programme of internal communications so their employees understand they only have their jobs because customers want to shop there.
