Various items and decorations in the restaurant are currently on sale on their Facebook Page. Items include the open sign, chalk board, shoes, burger hat, hot dog hat, hot dog salt and pepper set, hot dog bank, various kitchen supplies including their famous milkshake blender!
Happy New Year everyone. It’s is with a very heavy heart and great sadness that after 31 years I have no choice but to close Blondies Burgers. This last year of Covid and the terrible increase in the cost of supplies has made it impossible for me to continue on. So in and around the 20th of January my doors will close permanently. It has been both an honour and a pleasure to serve my community as well as wonderful people from all over Canada, the UK and as far away as Australia! I have met so many fabulous people, some as children, who have grown up to have children of their own who are now customers! You will all be missed. I’ve been one of the lucky ones … not too many restaurants can hang on as long as I did , couldn’t have done it without all of you! So on that note I’m going to stop yapping before the tears destroy my battery on this iPad. Horrible two hears, I lost my dad, my cat MG, and now my business of 31 years. However….. i DO have IzzyBelly! hahaha! On a positive note. Strawberry shakes will be half price until I close! – Blondie’s Burgers via Facebook
