CRIME: Burien Press Coffee Shop Burglarized Overnight
BTB Reader Jeff McCullough first tipped us to the fact that Burien Press, located at 423 152nd Street SW (across from the City Hall/Library) was burglarized overnight.
“It’s important that crimes like this are made public and that the perpetrators are caught,” Jeff said via email. “We’ve seen crimes like this happen too often in Burien and these acts are the same ones that will force businesses to leave our community. This is a reminder to everyone of the importance of supporting our favorite local shops and restaurants.”
Adds Burien Press co-owner Erin Williamson:
“Although it is disheartening when malicious individuals attack independent, family-owned small businesses, this incident did nothing but reinforce our belief that Burien is a wonderful and supportive community and we are lucky to be here. We are grateful to our staff and customers who make even the difficult days rewarding.”
While we have no other specifics about the crime, and are aware that this is an ongoing police investigation, we wanted to spread the word since BP has been a longtime Advertiser, and we’d like to let our Readers know that now might be a good time to frequent them for your next cuppa coffee.
