Starbucks Denies Report Restrooms

Starbucks Denies Report Restrooms, A report claims Starbucks plans to close public restrooms in stores around the city, but the coffee chain says it isn’t true.

The New York Post reported Wednesday morning that the chains planned to restrict access to restrooms, allowing only employees to use them.

“Starbucks cannot be the public bathroom to the city anymore,” a source familiar with the situation told the Post, adding that the new closed-door policy on bathrooms stems from employees having to wait in lines when they take a break. Some employees also say they have to repair broken toilets two to three times per week, which is expensive.

But Starbucks tweeted Wednesday afternoon that the story was false, saying “hey, we’re not closing public bathrooms at all, that’s not true” and “we’re definitely not closing bathrooms for customers or the general public, to clear that up.”

The newspaper found locations around the city, including one near Times Square and another near Lincoln Center, that had already closed or limited their restrooms. The paper said this was part of the company’s larger plan.
