Back in the fall, we asked you to name your favorite local businesses, and you responded. We received dozens of nominations in all sorts of categories, so many, in fact, that it’s taken us a while to sort them all out. But sort them we have, and we’re happy to announce the winners in some categories (where there was unanimous support). In other categories, we’re asking for your help. Vote for the winner in each category by emailing us (firstname.lastname@example.org) or coming into the store (visit the Info desk of any Vroman’s location). One vote per category per person.
We will profile the winner in each category on this blog, including the business’s history and a look at what makes it so special.
Voting will run from now until the close of business on Friday, February 20. Happy voting!
