BIZNOTES: Opening, closure, vacation

But not in that order:

OPENING: Last month, we reported on the plans for Larry’s Tavern at 3405 California SW. The proprietors have announced they plan to open on Saturday, September 14th.

VACATION: A few blocks north, proprietor Kim at The Swinery wants you to know, “We will be closed for vacation from Sunday, September 1st, and will reopen on Tuesday September 10th, whereupon we will be ready to take Thanksgiving orders for hams and turkeys.”

CLOSURE: Not West Seattle, but of note: Alki Bakery‘s SODO location is closing. Marlo sent this photo of the sign:

It’s been almost 9 years since Alki Bakery closed its 61st/Alki location, also with a sign thanking patrons for “25 great years.”

    Well considering that Alki Bakery literally raised some of their prices over 100%, it’s no surprise they’re going out of business. Though all the vibrancy of dilapidated RVs surrounding it should have brought in customers

    Yeah raising their prices over a weekend without warning customers was really stupid. I went in on a Monday and had to spend an extra $3-4 on a sandwich that was always like $8, and is/was $11-something after their price change. Not to mention all the disgusting RV’s, homeless, and drug addicts probably didn’t do well for the curb appeal. This entire area is a dump though so it’s not really their fault. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
