SEATTLE, 2017-Apr-30 — /EPR Retail News/ — For four generations, Bartell Drugs has been the leading drugstore for the residents of the Pacific Northwest.
To celebrate its 127th year, Bartells is planning a chain wide “Grand Event” with the biggest bargains of the year on thousands of fantastic products. The “Grand Event” runs April 30 through May 13.
In addition to the sales, 10 special in-store events are scheduled. These events will include activities such as free make-up demonstrations and manicures, sampling by several local vendors, and special give-aways. It all wraps up on May 13 with “Show Your Red Day.” All customers wearing red will receive a commemorative, limited-edition Seattle Chocolates Bartell chocolate bar (one per person with a minimum $15 purchase):

As part of the celebration and to emphasize Bartell’s commitment to the community, we have donated more than 500 “Clean Kits,” packets filled with some of the top needed personal care products, to Seattle’s Union Gospel. Bartell staff will be passing out the kits at the Georgetown “Tiny Village” on Thursday, May 4 beginning at 8:30 a.m. along with special Bartell Birthday cookies and hot chocolate for encampment residents. Representatives from SUGM will also be on-hand on May 11 at our Fifth and Olive store to educate about its mission helping the city’s homeless. Customers will also have the opportunity to purchase items at the store for distribution to area needy.
“Bartell Drugs has been integral part of the community for four generations,” says Bartell Senior Communications Manager, Ric Brewer. “We want to demonstrate this connection with our annual sales event for our dedicated customers, and by giving back by providing needed items to some of the most vulnerable in our community with Seattle’s Union Gospel Mission.”
