The next time you’re near a Starbucks and need to use the bathroom, employees won’t ask you to purchase anything, but there are still some restrictions on what you can do as a non-paying customer.
Starbucks updated its guest policy over the weekend after a video went viral that showed two black men being arrested at a Philadelphia cafe after one asked to use the bathroom.
“Any person who enters our spaces, including patios, cafes and restrooms, regardless of whether they make a purchase, is considered a customer,” the company wrote in a statement last week.
But now, Starbucks says that while nonpaying customers will be welcomed into their cafes, there are still some basic restrictions on their behavior.
