"Tucked away in a residential neighborhood, it's retail therapy time!"
In the middle of an otherwise unassuming residential neighborhood, Barton Street is home to a very suburban looking strip mall in a very un-suburban town. Ten years ago, the area was an eye-sore of closed shops and a seedy hangout for local teens, but a gentrification as of late has made Westwood Village the shopping spot in West Seattle. There are plenty of stores that are usually found on the periphery of major malls, but the convenience of them being in a neighborhood is a rare treat in Seattle. You can find Target, Bed Bath & Beyond, Marshalls, and Barnes & Noble in Westwood along with local eateries and other stores. Not quite as posh as U Village, it does provide an excellent all-in-one errand center for West Seattleites. It's also on a bus line!
