There's not much you can do until your state passes a smoking ban. Once we did that in Minnesota, finally, FINALLY smokers *usually* follow the law and stay the required distance from building entrances.
I mean, you can voice your complaint to the store as you've done here, but a law will help.
As much as I feel for smokers who are getting taxed at a high rate and then ostracized for their vice, I love the smoking ban. It's so nice to come home and not have to deal with smoke-stinky clothes and hair. Unfortunately, the state smoking ban in Minnesota has hurt my local bingo parlor (which was a BLAST), and they had an awesome setup with special rooms for nonsmokers (smokers were the majority) -- the law effectively ruined that for them.
