A CUSTOMER at Barrow's River Island store claims staff made 'insulting comments' about him.

The male shopper was in the store last week when he says three 'young female shop assistants' made disparaging comments about his looks. 

The customer says they assumed because he had head phones on that he would not be able to hear them. 

He sent a tweet to River Island and said: "Horrible experience in your Barrow-in-Furness store today. I was the only person browsing menswear, with headphones on. Unbeknown to 3 young female assistants at the counter, I could hear (and see) them making insulting comments about my looks. Def won't be back."
