B-TOWN BIZ: Burien Books Open For Business In Olde Burien
A local institution has completed its move and the doors at Burien Books are now open in Olde Burien. As of Tuesday, July 13, Burien readers can drop in at the new location on 152nd Street, right next door to B-Town Burgers and Shakes.
New owner Allison Lee-Moore — busy working on finishing touches like polishing the new store windows today — said the official grand opening is still two to three weeks away. Right now there is just temporary lettering on the windows but new vinyl window displays and a hanging sign over the sidewalk will be coming soon.
In the mean time, the book store is open 11 AM to 6 PM Tuesday and Wednesday, noon to 7 PM Thursday and Friday and noon to 6 PM on Saturday. The store is closed Sunday and Monday.
Allison plans to eventually offer story time for kids in the store, and is investigating ways to serve local book clubs.
Be sure to stop by and poke your nose into the store during this weekend’s Olde Burien Block Party on Saturday!
