Starbucks Defends Itself Against Bathroom-Closing Allegations
An item ran in today's Post claiming that Starbucks, long the public bathroom of choice for New Yorkers, is putting an end to the practice of letting the general public use the facilities. The article quoted a "source familiar with the company's New York plans" saying that Starbucks is going to convert all of its bathrooms to employee-only bathrooms. A city mourned.
But Starbucks itself has taken to Twitter to deny that it's planning anything of the kind.
So, that appears to be that. Go pee in a Starbucks (bathroom), like you are wont to do.
