B-TOWN BIZ: BTown Burgers & Shakes Apparently ‘Closed For Repairs’
BTown Burgers & Shakes, located at 822 SW 152nd Street in Olde Burien, has apparently been ‘closed for repairs’ for several weeks now, according to our observations, as well as their Facebook Page and Twitter feed.
“Sorry Folks we are doing some major canges will keep yo posted (sic),” reads a note posted on their Facebook Page on Thursday (Feb. 16).
One Facebook follower added “Would like to use the gift cards we received for Christmas some time soon. Don’t want them to go to waste,” which did not receive a response from the owners.
We tried calling the business for more information, but the phone number (206-436-8404) was busy on several repeated attempts.
According to a Commenter calling himself ‘Jo Shmo‘:
BTBurgers filed for Chapter 11 in December. It was posted in the Puget Sound Business Journal in the notices section.
The last Tweet for BTown Burgers was sent out Jan. 12:
Buy any burger today and get the second for a dollar
BTB Intern Bryan Charles went over Thursday afternoon to investigate, but only found the lights out, doors locked and this sign on the front door:
There is no mention of the closure on their website.
As we learn more about what’s going on at this business, we’ll update this post.
