    I agree with you 100%! Thank you for making business owners aware. I do believe it would help a lot of businesses, not just retail, but anything where women are becomming more involved. I do think men appreciate a clean bathroom as well though, don’t get me wrong. So, I think it should be a focus of every company to maintain cleanliness where it counts.
