One day after the life-changing news broke that Starbucks would be closing most of its public bathrooms, the company is working hard to flush away what it calls an untrue rumor, rapidly tweeting denials like, “We’re definitely not closing bathrooms for customers or the general public, to clear that up.” amNewYork spoke to a Starbucks rep who said: “Reports that we are eliminating public restrooms are completely false. Starbucks stores will continue to have public restrooms available. In rare cases at large stores with two restrooms, we have converted one of the restrooms for partner (employee) use.” So, unzip and relax. [amNY, Related]
