Print This Post  Email This Post

Owner Allison Lee-Moore in 2010 when she moved longtime local business Burien Books to Olde Burien.

After 57 years in business, Burien Books announced that it will be closing by the end of the year.

The good news is that they’ll be offering 30% off through Tuesday, Nov 8.

“While we are very sad that we will no longer be part of Burien’s vision of the future, we know that this is the best decision for our young family,” owner Allison Lee-Moore said. “We will be liquidating most of our inventory through the next weeks and months and all sales are final.”

The owners also ask that all unused gift certificates and credits issued by Burien Books, LLC in the last 6 years be redeemed by Dec. 17, 2016.

Burien Books is located in Olde Burien at 824 SW 152nd Street.

    The first books given to me when I was learning to read were bought at the original Burien Book Store, They are on my shelves today and still entice new readers! Though I am of course sad to see the store close, I wish you all the best in wherever your life now takes you!

    I’m so very sorry to hear this. The very best to your young family. A huge loss to the community.

    Books are obsolete. Everything is digital now.

    Why are we still spending multi millions of $$ on brand new public libraries that only homeless use for the bathrooms to shoot up?

    Good luck to the former owners.

      Ah Ted, speaking of being obsolete, your view of the library is quite out dated. For one thing, people use the library for many types of data access, other than books or other print literature. This is to say nothing of how it provides a sense of community to many of us. If you no longer care to read books that is your choice. But, speaking as someone who loves the digital/wireless age, I see no reason to stop enjoying books, and other print formats, old or new.

      If nothing else will give you pause, you might consider the monetary value of the books and other data formats that the public is given free access to at our public libraries. Other than ‘free education’ there is no better deal in our society.

    Sorry to hear this. Thanks for the great service on the books I have ordered through you. Best wishes in future endeavors.
