Bartell touts 'next gen' store

Regional chain Bartell Drugs recently opened its “next generation” store format, a remodel of an existing store in Seattle’s Roosevelt neighborhood. Developed in conjunction with Hartman Group,  the store includes a “Fresh Beauty” cosmetics section with natural and organic product lines; a “Wellness Courtyard” for supplements, vitamins and healthy beverages; a “Sweets & Snacks” section with new displays and lighting; and an “Urban Market” that showcases unique and locally produced products. The store also features a more modern look with lower shelves and hardwood flooring.
