Skipper’s hits the rocks

Did you know that Skipper’s seafood restaurants are northwest-based – in SeaTac (previously Edmonds)? (Admittedly, we didn’t.) Or that it filed for bankruptcy protection last December?

Apparently, a number of the people who work there didn’t know, and consequently have been taking by surprise with the news: Many of the chain’s outlets will be closed and others sold, in many cases within a day or two, as a result of bankruptcy action.

Skipper’s has (according to its web site) 70 outlets, including 30 in Washington, 13 in Oregon and eight in Idaho; the site also reports operations in Alaska, Montana and Utah. Wikipedia says that the action number is 58, and bankruptcy filings in December indicated 59.

Always liked their chowder . . .
