Starbucks: You Can Still Pee Here

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Rumors that Starbucks' ( SBUX) public bathrooms are off-limits are false, according to the coffee company.

The New York Post reported Tuesday that Starbucks is slowly closing its bathrooms to the public. The newspaper said the loos would be for employees only.

But a Starbucks spokesperson said Wednesday the restrooms will remain open.

"Reports that we are eliminating public restrooms are completely false," the spokesperson said. "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."

Shares of Starbucks were down 1.36% to $43.43 in trading Wednesday.
