Exclusive Toilet ‘Club’ To Open In New York City
The days of having to stop-and-go in a seedy, smelly or unsightly public restroom may soon be a thing of the past. The European Cleaning Journal reports that a new facility — really, an amped up version of an Interstate rest area — will open in New York City, by summer.
The company, POSH Stow and Go, is seeking a limited number of ‘members’ to sign up to use its clean, soundproofed restrooms when visiting the city for shopping and sightseeing. Among the facility’s amenitities include touch-free taps, “frequently-cleaned” baby changing tables and motion-sensored toilets.
According to company founder, Wayne Parks: “I’m a germaphobe and I don’t like dirty bathrooms, but these are great because they are cleaned after every use. POSH Stow and Go will also be a resting place for visitors who don’t have homes or offices in Manhattan. And it’s a place to drop something off if you’re in a jam.”
The first facility opens in June in Midtown Manhattan between Grand Central and Penn stations. Besides the restrooms, the POSH Stow and Go outlet will also offer storage lockers, showers, laundry machines and a lounge area with wood floors and couches with phone-charging stations.
Facility “members” will pay about a $15 annual fee plus $24 for three days’ use.
If the Midtown location catches on this summer, the company will open another facility in lower Manhattan at a later date, the journal reports.
