B-TOWN BIZ: Longtime Burien Business Herr Backyard Center Closing June 15
Longtime Burien business Herr Backyard Center announced that they will be closing June 15 (NOTE: closing date changed from June 1 after an employee contacted us) after being in their historic Five Corners location at 107 SW 160th for numerous years.
The good folks at Herr had been Advertisers with us in the past, and we’re sad to hear of the store’s closing (we were frequent customers and always bought our holiday trees there!).
Their website appears to be down, and we had heard rumors about the impending closing due to Dianne’s retirement, as well as failed attempts to find a new business partner.
On Tuesday (April 24), we found this post on Craigslist:
Herr backyard garden center is getting ready to close in June. we have a lot of racking and display items for sale:
100s of pegboard hooks from $.10-$.50 each
steel industrial racking
a Christmas tree netting machine
two steel tree carts
an assortment of both wooden and steel displays
we are located on 107 sw 160th street and are open from 10-5 wednesdays to sundays. bring all inquires to the front counter and we will be happy to negotiate a price from there.
We’ve got word out to Owners Dianne and Lisa, and will update this post when we hear back from them.
