Bellingham's Shrimp Shack still open, up for sale

Posted by DAVE GALLAGHER on April 23, 2014 

Earlier this year I wrote about the Shrimp Shack going up for sale (link).

I received an update from co-owner Sarah James, who said that while they've had some prospective buyers, they have not sold it yet. If they cannot find a buyer, the plan is to close the restaurant at the end of the business day on Saturday, May 24.

The important thing James wanted to let customers know is they are currently open regular hours.

"Many of our customers think we are closed, and we receive many phone calls daily from people asking if we are still here," she said in an email. "Our goal is to find a buyer to keep it going. We have dropped our sale price to well below market value at $50,000."

Restaurant hours are 11:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. Anyone interested in the business can call 360-752-9100.
