On Thursday morning (April 22), a sign company put its crane in position and gently removed the “B-Town Scoop” neon sign from above the one-time ice cream shop storefront at 917 SW 152nd Street in Olde Burien.
When asked what the future held for the iconic sign, we were pleased to hear that, rather than being put away in storage, it will be refurbished and re-used for the new business occupying the storefront, a home decor shop called “Statements.”
The B-Town Scoop sign was originally designed by local Burienite Jana Kleitsch .
“Statements” is scheduled to hold a Grand Opening on Saturday, May 1st, from 10am â€“ 6pm, and while we’re not sure the new sign will be back in place by then, we’d like to extend a hearty B-Town Blog welcome to them!
