The City of Burien and Discover Burien this week announced the launch of two new resources to support local restaurants and retail businesses – Burien Eat Streets, a hyperlocal comprehensive online restaurant directory, along with a virtual shopping directory linking to independently-owned Burien retail shops that offer online shopping.
The City of Burien and Discover Burien are working together to help Burien’s businesses adapt to changing economic and public health realities in order to ensure the safety of their employees and customers.
The Burien Eat Streets directory offers the ability to find a restaurant based on type of cuisine, location, and current available services including: curbside pickup, delivery, and contactless pickup options. Direct links to the restaurant’s website, social media, online ordering platform, and phone number are also available.
“Restaurants and food service establishments have been severely impacted by public health orders that limit indoor dining; the ‘Burien Eat Streets’ tool aims to help mitigate impacts by directing local consumers to information on the best ways to find and support local restaurants through takeout and delivery options,” said Chris Craig, Economic Development Manager with the City.
The Burien Eat Streets directory will be continuously updated to reflect changes in business service options and provide information on reopening of temporarily closed restaurants. Burien Eat Streets will strive to provide daily updates to ensure information is current and up to date.
Businesses that find their restaurant listing needs to be added or modified can contact the City’s economic development team directly at [email protected].
New Discover Burien Virtual Shopping Resource
Continuing the “Burien Strong” effort to support local businesses, Discover Burien is encouraging everyone to shop local, shop small, and shop often during the holiday season. While online sales have increased dramatically during the pandemic, a majority of these purchases have been through “big box” retailers.
Discover Burien has launched an online retail shopping directory for Burien small businesses to make the online shopping easier with a one-stop shopping link. The goal is to help keep these storefronts in business through the pandemic and support a successful holiday shopping season.
