It looks like iBurger is no longer in business on Snoqualmie Ridge. The popular fast food spot attracted lots of local kids with its burgers, fries and milkshakes, but as of today the front and back windows are blacked out with brown paper; the tell-tale sign on Snoqualmie Ridge that a business didn’t make it. iBurger opened about four years ago.
Meanwhile, Cascade Dance Academy is at work on an expansion next door the iBurger location and up the block from its current dance studio. They will open their additional Ridge Marketplace location soon.
Another chiropractor is also said to be opening near Ridge Fitness, in the former scrapbooking store spot. The new chiropractor had a booth at Railroad Days saying it would open October 2013. Currently there is one chiropractor, Snoqualmie Ridge Chiropractor, located in the retail complex adjacent Gateway Gas and Deli. It used to be located next to SnoValley Coffee but relocated to a bigger spot a few years ago.
Phil Stafford, Finaghty’s Irish Pub owner, says a key to Snoqualmie businesses’ success is support from the local community. So if you have a business you like, don’t forget to patronize it. Remember what it was like to be without a grocery story?
