Bartell Drugs, which currently operates two stores in Ballard, has announced plans to open a new store in 2016 at Ballard Commons, an innovative mixed-use development planned for the site currently occupied by the Bartell Drugs store at 5605 22nd Ave NW.

The new 14,000-square-foot location will be the major retail anchor at Ballard Commons and will include convenient underground parking for Bartell Drugs customers.

Earlier this year, Seattle-based, family-owned Bartell Drugs opened a full-service “next generation” store at 1500 NW Market Street (15th & Market), introducing new services, product offerings and customer convenience features.

Upon closure of the store at 22nd Ave NW in January 2015, Bartell Drugs will continue to serve the store’s customers with pharmacy services and a full range of drugstore features at the recently opened Bartell’s location at 15th & Market.

Bartell Drugs has a lengthy history of serving the health and wellness needs of Ballard area residents.The new store will mark the sixth Bartells location in Ballard since 1911.
