For immediate release: February 15, 2016
SEATTLE—Part of the joy of living in the Pacific Northwest is the opportunity to enjoy locally made products. Bartell Drugs is highlighting locally and regionally produced products carried in many of our 64 stores during “Loving Local” month.
With our own more than 125-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. And to celebrate, we are offering three special events to showcase the more than 150 great local products to our Bartell customers.
We’ll also be hosting local musicians at events in three of our stores: Burien, Roosevelt and the newly remodeled Bellevue Village Store. Along with the live music, customers will be treated to samplings of local products including Nuun electrolyte tablets, Dry Soda, Sparkling Ice, Bodyceuticals and Market Spice teas, a caricature artist will be on-hand to capture your unique style, a moving photo booth, and much more. Local matters to us and we know it matters to you, too! So show your love!
The three kick-off events will be:
Thursday, February 18, 2016 from 12:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Friday, February 19, 2016 from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
Bellevue Village Store
Saturday, February 20, 2016 from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Among the local products our stores carry, we’ll be highlighting several through February 20 including Seattle Chocolates, Okocat Cat Litter, Fremont Brewery, Sahale Snacks, Theo Chocolates, among others.
