UPDATE: As of at least Monday, March 20, the restrooms are again open to the public.
If you're going to need to use the bathroom, it's best to take care of it before you get to Conestoga Mall.
The mall's two public bathrooms – one men's and one women's – have closed. Customers are being asked to use the facilities at individual businesses inside the mall.
A sign posted near the mall entrance says, as of Feb. 28, "the bathroom located in the common areas are permanently closed. Please utilize the bathrooms that are located in the individual business spaces moving forward. We apologize for any inconvenience."
Some of the mall's tenants aren't happy about the situation. The manager of one store said if customers visit the bathroom in her store, they have to pass through the back room, where employees leave their purses. Customers might also spot information about employees.
