Bartell Drugs is opening its newest store, on Snoqualmie Ridge with a grand opening celebration 8 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Aug. 5. Staff and family members — Bartell’s is the oldest, family owned retail pharmacy in the U.S. — welcomed local businesses and officials to a pre-opening reception and ribbon cutting on Thursday, July 27.
“Bartell’s is very excited to expand further into the Eastside,” said company CFO Rob Jensen. “Our blend of convenience, service and a truly unique product selection, including many local brands, sets us apart.”
At the reception, members of the Bartell and Barber families also presented a $5,000 donation to conservation group Forterra, in support of its Green Cities program.
Bartell Communications Manager Ric Brewer explained that “Green Cities helps to preserve and protect green spaces in communities around the area. The program is working very closely with the Snoqualmie government, the tribe and other entities in the area which shows the collaboration that we also look for.”
The Snoqualmie store, at 35013 Snoqualmie Parkway, will feature a full-service pharmacy and drive-up window, a growler fill-up area, digital photo processing, and a hand-dipped ice cream fountain.
The Aug. 5 grand opening will include gift basket give-aways, product sampling, and free, customized Snoqualmie water bottles containing Bartell Drugs’ gift cards to the first 200 guests.
“We are very pleased to welcome Bartell’s to Snoqualmie and sincerely appreciate their investment in our community,” said Snoqualmie Mayor Matt Larson.
