Bartell to open three Seattle-area stores this year


SEATTLE Regional retail pharmacy chain Bartell Drugs plans to open three new stores in the Seattle area.

On July 20, Bartell will open a 16,400 sq.-ft. store in the suburb of Lynnwood, Wash., holding a ribbon-cutting event on July 21.

The chain also plans to open a store near Mill Creek, Wash., next month and another in Issaquah, Wash., in September.

“This new store, and the one we will be opening near Mill Creek, underscores our commitment to serving the needs of the residents of Snohomish County,” chairman and CEO George Bartell said in a statement.

The Lynnwood store replaces a 17-year-old store in the nearby suburb of Mukilteo, Wash., and all pharmacy and photo records will be transferred there. The store will include a drive-through pharmacy and Bartell’s PixPlus digital-print photo kiosks and employ 25 workers.
