Cranberry Mall to start no-smoking policy
Effective June 1, Cranberry Mall in Westminster will implement a new policy that it "does not allow smoking of any tobacco products in all common areas of the mall."
"The mall is smoke-free," mall officials said.
Last Feb. 12, Cranberry became the first mall in Maryland to implement designated smoking areas without a county or city ordinance. As a result of positive comments and shopper and merchant support, the mall now is making all common areas smoke-free.
