Two Burien businesses have decided to shutter their doors before starting the New Year, as both Vino Bello and Oliver’s Bite have apparently closed.

Vino Bello, located at 636 SW 152nd Street, first opened on July 4, 2006.

Oliver’s Bite, located at 245 SW 152nd Street, opened in Feb., 2013.

“We are saddened to see two Burien businesses have close dtheir doors,” reads a note by Start Fresh Market Owner Catherine Barashkoff on Facebook. “Vino Bello Wine Bar & Shop and Oliver’s Bite both closed at the end of the year. In 2014 please try to get out in your neighborhood and support your small businesses. Small businesses are good for your local economy, create jobs and can turn a great neighborhood into a community. Best wishes to our fellow business owners as they start new chapters in their lives.”

“We would like to thank our amazing family, friends, and customers for supporting Oliver’s Bite this year,” reads an announcement on Facebook. “It’s been a fun ride, but we decided to close our doors and let our ‘retired’ parents actually retire for good. We’re extremely sad to say goodbye to everyone, but we’re excited to start a new chapter in our lives. Plus, we live in Burien so we’ll most likely run into everyone. Our bakery is up for sale so if you or your friends are interested, please email us at [email protected].”

    Sinfully Bronzed tanning. Many Burien residents got Burned (Not tan) with worthless memberships and prepaid tans. And yes I am one of them…….. It would be nice to know if anyone else has any more info. Thanks Ron

    Just a friendly reminder to btown businesses, you have to have a quality and desired product along with a pleasant service staff if you want to have repeat clientele.
