If the store rooms are small, used as cupboards and there is no self-closing device fitted to the door it must be kept locked. Fit a Fire Door Keep Locked sign to the outside face of the door. 

If the door is self-closing it does not need to be kept locked but must be kept shut. Fit Fire Door Keep Shut signs to both faces of the door.

In Scotland the building regs state a maximum size for the cupboard for such scenarios. 

Guidance can be found in the document 'Code of practice: Hardware for Fire & Escape doors' at  http://www.firecode.org.uk/
