B-TOWN BIZ: Longtime local business Burien City Garage has officially closed
by Guy Harper
Sadly, longtime local business Burien City Garage has officially closed.
The history of the building – located at 14926 Ambaum Blvd SW – reveals that the roof beams were apparently salvaged from the remains of the collapsed Tacoma Narrows Bridge and the brass front door is from an office building in the state capitol.
Above the door in a gold color is the word “WASHINGTON.”
Duane and Mary Quande bought the business in 1975, and it is now being closed due to the recent passing of Duane (read our previous coverage here).
Starting this Friday, June 27, from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m., there will be an Equipment Sale for heavy equipment such as lifts and hoists.
Although closed Saturday and Sunday, the sale will continue next week.
The extensive buildings and property, which includes BCG, the auto repair facility and the furniture store are also for sale. Contact Stu Engstrom, Sales Manager for Berkshire Hathaway Northwest Real Estate at (206) 799-5689 for details.
The memorabilia will be sold at a later date to be advised.
The 1957 Chevrolet convertible is for sale for $80,000.00; as many of our Readers may recall, this historic, restored classic was stolen, then recovered by Burien Police in October of 2012.
Call Shawn Cunningham at (206) 242-1700 for further details.
