Bartell Drugs shows it ‘loves’ the Northwest
SEATTLE — Bartell Drugs is highlighting locally and regionally based companies during “Loving Local” week from Feb. 12-18.
“With our 127-year history in the Northwest, Bartell’s is proud to support other home-grown businesses and products, something larger chains just aren’t able to do,” the retailer stated in a news release. “And to celebrate, we are offering special vendor sampling and in-store events to showcase the more than 150 great local products to our Bartell customers. Some of the vendors will include: Joe Chocolates, Moon Valley Organics, Earth Baby Mama Angel, DRY beverages, Himalayan Dog Treats and Zings bars. In-store events will feature a caricature artist or a face-painter, along with food and drink sampling.”
As part of celebrating local and helping our community, Bartell’s is also donating to select neighborhood food banks. Representatives from the Ballard Food Bank, Mill Creek Food Bank and the Highline Food Bank will be on-hand at their neighborhood Bartells to highlight their organizations’ programs for store guests at the three in-store events.
