ATHENS, Ga. (WCMH) — You can call it a sign of the times, literally. A sign on the door of a unisex restroom at Kroger store in Athens, Georgia has gone viral on social media.

The sign says the unisex facility is in place “because sometimes gender specific toilets put others into uncomfortable situations.”

The sign also notes the bathroom is in place for “Dads with daughters, Moms with sons, Parents with disabled children, Those in the LGBTQ, Adults with aging parents who may be mentally or physically disabled.”

Tonya Owens posted a photo of the sign on Kroger’s Facebook page with the caption that said simply “Nice job Kroger.”

Kroger said that the sign isn’t anything new. In fact, it’s been hanging on the door ever since the store opened in 2014.

“Kroger stores with unisex bathrooms are designed to serve our customers stated on that sign – parents with young children, parents with disabled children, adults with aging parents, the LGBTQ community and for any other reason such an accommodation might be more convenient,” said Glynn Jenkins, public relations director of Kroger’s Atlanta Division. “We are proud to serve each and every customer that walks in our doors.”
