Video: Zippy’s Giant Burgers says goodbye to West Seattle

WSB contributor Deanie Schwarz captured the scene on video as Zippy’s Giant Burgers handled a giant crowd in its final hour of business in West Seattle. Its original location in Highland Park, which opened in May 2008, is now closed. As first reported here two months ago, Zippy’s is moving to a new, larger location in White Center (9614 14th SW) because foreclosure against its former landlord at 16th/Holden left the building with an uncertain fate. We’ll add a bit more later, including the customers who “tied” for official final order in HP! An intensive week-plus moving process now begins, and Zippy’s hopes to open in WC on April 25th. ADDED 10:17 PM: Also from Deanie – Zippy’s proprietors Blaine and Rahel Cook:

And a last look at the simple storefront:

Zippy’s website has a countdown clock looking ahead to the reopening, by the way.

    We love you, Zippy’s! I think you are going to be even closer to us now. :-) We’re looking forward to a bigger dining room and credit cards!!! Can’t wait to check you out at the new locale.

    Really happy to hear Zippys will be closer to upper W Seattle and with more leg room as well. We haven’t been to Zippy’s in a while but we will now that they are so close. Congratz Zippys!

    See you guys in WS. Will miss you at the (closer) location, but when I’m back in the States it’s “Zippy Rides Again!!” Good luck with the move. Zip’ Deluxe, Fries and a Sarsaparilla. :) Notice I didn’t say “French” Fries. ;)

    That is a GREAT picture of Mr. and Mrs. Zippy! You should hang that in your new location.
