MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND
grinng fish 4th WE WILL BE OPEN ON SUNDAY, MAY 24, 10 am - 4 pm, AND CLOSED ON MONDAY, MAY 25.
It seems a bit strange to have a day off when so many of us are working from home in any case. We hope that everyone will get a break from their current routine, can get out the grill and have some outdoor, socially distanced quality time with their family. 
Stay safe, enjoy some grilled seafood!

WILD SALMON IS BACK! Copper River Kings are coming in - supply 
is limited, so please order if you just have to have it. As always at the start of the season, prices are pretty high. With all the restaurants closed, the fishermen are having a hard time, so we're trying to support them.


ORDER NOW FOR PICK UP OR DELIVERY ON THE 24TH   630-887-4700.
PLEASE RESPECT EVERYONE...WEAR A MASK
Again this week we had 3 customers refusing to wear a mask, and we had to ask them to leave. When the scientists and doctors say that there is no longer a risk, we will change our policy. Until then, masks are required.
     We understand that times are stressful for us all. For Burhop's, it's especially hard, as our staff is on the front lines, dealing with the public 6 days a week. Ours is a small store, and we need to keep both our staff and our customers safe. So please. please do the following:
1) Wear a mask or face covering that covers your nose and mouth. Many people, especially children apparently, can be asymptomatic, i.e. have no symptoms but are still spreading the virus. The people who refuse to wear a mask are being disrespectful to everyone they come into contact with. Just because you don't feel sick doesn't mean you're not spreading the virus.
2) Take advantage of our curbside pickup or the GoFr delivery service. Just call with a credit card. 630-887-4700. Our fish and prepared foods are always fresh and premium quality - we will give you what you want (as long as we have it) with no contact required. We will also wrap fish for freezing, so you can have some handy for a future meal. 
3) If you want to come into the store. please LOOK FIRST, to see if there are already 8 customers in the store. If there are already 8 customers (staff is extra), please wait outside until someone leaves.  The entry way is covered, and the weather is improving - just be sure to leave a safe distance between yourself and the next person. 
     Many of our most loyal customers are in the upper age brackets that are most at risk from Covid 19. When they venture out, they want to feel safe. Because quarters are close in our store, they get very upset by people with no masks. Please think of them as well as our staff when you venture out. Wearing a mask is not exactly a huge sacrifice. And it could save a life, even your own. 

NO ONE DIES FROM WEARING A MASK, 
BUT PEOPLE MAY DIE IF YOU DON'T.

(We close at 5:30 on Saturday, and when open on Sunday, close at 4:00.) Must have a neat appearance, be good at dealing with the public, and be willing to wear protective gear (face mask, gloves) while working. Experience with catering a plus.

If you're interested in good food, we are a great place to work, and our hours are way more family friendly than a restaurant.

NEW DELIVERY SERVICE THROUGH GoFr
AVAILABLE IN THE HINSDALE AREA
grilling fishWant to grill some fresh fish but don't want to go to the store? We've joined forces with local delivery service GoFr, so you can get your seafood brought to your door. They are currently delivering for Kramer's, so it made sense to join the effort to keep everyone safe.  The delivery area currently covers Hinsdale, Westmont, Willowbrook, west LaGrange and south Oak Brook - about a 5 mile radius. Depending on your proximity to Hinsdale, GoFr may be willing to deliver to you for a slightly higher fee. We currently have a delivery of some of our prepared foods through DoorDash, but this will allow people to order fresh raw product as well as all our prepared foods. 
     Unsolicited testimonial from a happy delivery customer: 
"I ordered from Burhops last week (fish was delicious) and it came within the hour. Very impressive." Duncan S., Downers Grove 

Here's how it works:
1)  You call us,  630-887-4700, and place your order, paid with a credit card. Hours for placing orders are from opening through 1/2 hr before closing, and not on Sunday when we are currently closed.(See temporary hours below). We welcome AND ENCOURAGE orders for future delivery, especially for party trays, which require more time to produce. The more time you give us, the more likely it is that we can get in something special for you, depending on availability. 
2)  We contact GoFr with your name, address and phone number.
3)   A GoFr delivery driver picks up your order from us and delivers it to your doorstep. 
Cost is $7 per delivery order, though if you order from Kramer's at the same time, it may be possible to pay only one $7 fee. (This hinges on both orders being ready to go at the same time.) 

WE HAVE A NEW CREDIT CARD SYSTEM WHICH ALLOWS US TO ENCRYPT YOUR  CREDIT CARD INFORMATION, EVEN WHEN YOU GIVE IT TO US OVER THE PHONE.    

We want to keep our customers safe as well as our staff, so please avail yourself of this wonderful service. 

KEEPING OUR CUSTOMERS & STAFF SAFE...
With restaurants closed, we should have plenty of fish, though lack of air travel may affect some availability. 
     To ease the concerns of our customers and lessen risk to our staff, we are now offering the following special services:
1) Pre-paid phone orders with a credit card - we will have them ready when you arrive, no waiting. 630-887-4700. Just grab and go. 
2) FREE CURB PICK-UP - Order with a credit card and tell us if you want it brought out to your car - just call as you arrive in front of the store and tell us what you're driving.  We can also process your credit card at your car window. The wonder of wireless technology. And if you have a credit card with the internet symbol, you can just tap and go. 
3) Phone orders, pay at pick-up. You still pay at the register, but your order is ready to go. 
     Want your fish for later? Ask us to wrap it for freezing. 
     Of course, you can just come in and shop as usual - we are constantly wiping down store surfaces, keeping things as pristine as possible. We ask that if you are not feeling well, or if you've been exposed to the virus, that you take advantage of the curbside pickup. Our staff is covering their mouths and noses, we ask that you do the same. 
     NO MORE THAN 10 PEOPLE ARE ALLOWED IN THE STORE AT ONE TIME, INCLUDING STAFF - SO PLEASE DON'T BRING THE WHOLE FAMILY! 
     We also have our prepared foods available for delivery through Doorddash - not our raw items, but sandwiches, soup, cooked entrees, prepared salads and side dishes.  Click Here for DoorDash deliveries. You'll see the menu on their site. Sale prices are not available on DoorDash orders, as they take a large fee.
