READER PHOTO: Movers Haul Stuff Out Of Sal’s Deli On Wednesday
BTB Reader Kathy Reed sent us this pic, taken as she drove by Sal’s Deli in downtown Burien Wednesday (Nov. 23), showing that movers were hauling stuff out of the iconic Burien business, which closed Oct. 30th and auctioned off most of its belongings on Tuesday (Nov. 22).
“Sad to see all the stuff from Sal’s Deli being taken out today,” Kathy said on her Facebook Page.
Sal’s, in business at 15212 6th Ave SW since 1969, was started by Bernard “Sal” Salwitz and his son, Greg.
Jim Hughes bought the deli in 1980. He closed shop Oct. 30th to retire.
Hughes, who grew up in the Burien area, was a fixture in the local business community and will be sorely missed by many.
