B & E Meats & Seafood will hold a ribbon cutting at noon Friday, Oct. 4 to celebrate the opening of its 4,000 square foot Newcastle location. Newcastle Mayor Rich Crispo and other local dignitaries will be on hand to formally welcome the market to the city.
The ribbon cutting will kick-off a weekend-long celebration grand opening for the Eastside community. B & E Meats & Seafood is located in Newcastle at 13020 Newcastle Way.
The business will open in the space formerly occupied by Newcastle City Hall.
“Newcastle residents have anticipated this opening ever since they heard B & E Meats & Seafood was coming to our city,” said Rob Wyman, Newcastle city manager. “The reputation of the 50-year old family business proceeded itself. We know how fortunate we are to have B & E join our community.”
The weekend-long festivities include an outdoor barbecue.
“We will be barbecuing our famous Kalbi Marinated Beef, our Teriyaki Beef Tri-tip, and much more all weekend long,” said Jeff Green, owner of B&E.
Green said B & E Meats selected Newcastle as the location for the family’s newest market after careful consideration.
“We looked all over the Northwest and we fell in love with Newcastle because it is so much about family and community. We found it a place where people are interested in raising their kids and where community has always been a formula for a success.”
The Newcastle store hours are 9 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Monday through Friday; 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday; and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday.
Brothers Bob and Earl Green opened B&E Meats in Burien on Aug. 1, 1958. They now have four locations.
