Continuing “Burien Strong’s” effort to support local businesses, Discover Burien encourages everyone to shop local, shop small, and shop often during the holiday season. While online sales increased dramatically during the pandemic, the majority of these purchases were made through “big box” retailers.
Discover Burien has launched an online retail shopping directory for Burien small businesses to facilitate online shopping with a single purchase link. The goal is to help keep these storefronts active during the pandemic and support a successful holiday shopping season.
