London – Britain’s biggest cell phone company, EE, is investigating one of their own stores in north London after patrons accused the store of refusing service to two Orthodox Jews.
Patrons claimed the store refused to give free portable phone chargers as part of an EE promotion to Jewish customers, but saw non-Jewish customers claim them, reports The London Evening Standard.
The Jewish customers were allegedly told the chargers were out of stock.
Assistant manager of the store, Daniel Reid, told The Jewish Chronicle that although he thought Jewish people were “very arrogant,” the store serves them to the best of their ability.
Police were on scene to talk to staff members, but left on the grounds that no crime had been committed.
Sam Schwartz, 33, a resident of the neighborhood and EE customer, said members of the Jewish community contemplating a boycott of EE.
An EE spokeswoman stated the company does not tolerate discrimination.
