DELTA MADE US DO IT -
CONTINUING MASK RULES
Because of the upsurge of Delta-variant Covid, we are asking that everyone wear a mask in the store. We are a small space, and Delta has been infecting the vaccinated as well those who still haven't figured out how serious this is and aren't vaccinated. Please do not yell at our staff - they are dealing with the public every day, and we want them to be safe.

IF JUST ONE PERSON ON OUR STAFF GETS SICK, WE WILL HAVE TO CLOSE FOR 2 WEEKS. THAT WOULD BE A HUGE FINANCIAL PROBLEM FOR US AS A SMALL BUSINESS WITH PERISHABLE PRODUCT. A MASK IS NOT PUNISHMENT, IT'S NOT POLITICAL, IT'S A WAY TO PREVENT THE TRANSMISSION OF GERMS.

Everyone's getting ready for the giant eat-fest on Thursday - let us save the cook some work. Order some of our delicious sides, made right here, or some of our fabulous pies and tarts. We have some customers who enjoy stuffed salmon fillets instead of turkey, so that's an option as well. Who says you have to eat turkey?

(Several of you are having stuffed salmon fillets instead of turkey - a turkey thanks you). We also have some delicious heat-and-eat side dishes that go wonderfully with your bird and some wonderful pies and ice cream for dessert. WE STRONGLY ENCOURAGE YOU TO PLACE AN ORDER - SOME ITEMS WILL BE IN SHORT SUPPLY. CALL 630-887-4700.

NEW! PUMPKIN PIE TARTS &
PUMPKIN SCONES
Just because we're a fish store doesn't mean we can't get in on the fall pumpkin craze! Our multi-talented resident baker, Claire, has created a new fall scone - pumpkin - to join her other customer favorites, blueberry and cranberry orange. Then Sean decided we should have a pumpkin pie tart. We love it when our kids come up with delicious ideas! Our pumpkin treats will be here through Thanksgiving, then gone until next fall. Get 'em while you can! Claire is working on some new scone flavors for the holidays. Stay tuned!

NEW CHECK OUT SYSTEM
We have just launched a new checkout system, tied into new scales, which we are not used to yet. Instead of having specials that last for two months, we will be having specials posted in the store in addition to the ones in our twice weekly blasts. Once we get used to making all the changes required for sale items, we may go back to the way we were doing things. In the meantime, daily specials will be posted on whiteboards in the store.
Our goal is to come into the 21st century with our check out system - we hope it will improve your shopping experience as well as our efficiency!

   In late June we catered a fun event for a family in Wilmette - a combined 40th and 5th birthday party, father and son. Another father and son duo, Burhop's Chef Jaime and his son Jonny, cooked up kebabs, lobster tails, sweet corn and more for a happy crowd of many ages. According to the hostess: 
"An AMAZING feast thanks to you, John and Jamie. The food was amazing and the chefs could not have been nicer. Everyone was raving and we certainly let them know who to call!  Thank you again, you have very satisfied customers." 
   Recently we did an oyster bar for a party in Hinsdale, and a lobster tail birthday party in Kenilworth. 
And in early October, we did a socially distanced wedding reception with individual lobster boil dinners.
   If you have something to celebrate, do it with great seafood! We will custom design a menu, just for you. To find out more, email us at nbburfish@gmail.com, or call us at 630-887-4700.
