Bartell Drugs opens 65th store


SEATTLE — Over the weekend, Bartell Drugs opened its 65th store in Seattle’s Chinatown-International District, holding a grand opening event on Sept. 17. The 11,656-sq. ft. store is seen by the chain as a signature store in its urban expansion and is located across from a commuter and Amtrak train station.


“Bartell Drugs is thrilled to be part of this dynamic neighborhood,” Bartell president and CEO Brian Unmacht said. “Our line-up of great products, convenience and superior red vest service will be a boon to both commuters and area residents alike.”


In addition to a full-service pharmacy, the new store has an expanded cosmetics section aimed at showcasing seasonal and on-trend colors, shades and products. It also has a growler fill spot called Northwest on Tap that showcases local microbrews, and a café. The grand opening festivities included giveaways and a traditional Chinese lion dance. 


Bartell Drugs already has its sights set on its 66th location, which it’s planning to open in Seattle’s Ballard neighborhood in October.
