We are thrilled to present our first ever “Best Of” issue, teeming with 50 fabulous businesses that you have chosen as your favorites. We were bowled over to see the tally, more than 8,000 of you chiming in to vote for the shops and services that you visit most often. More than 4,000 people visited our website in January for the nomination process. Then, twice that hit “send” on our final survey. Thank you all for showing that shopping local still takes the gold.
We’re having a party this month to celebrate with the winners and will share photos from the award ceremony in the next issue. In the meantime, DO look for the BEST OF window decals at stores you visit and be sure to congratulate the businesses who have earned the Buckhaven Best of 2017 designation. They are all listed in this issue, along with the runners up who also deserve a hearty pat on the back.
We couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate our FIFTH ANNIVERSARY ISSUE than by honoring the businesses that make our community so special. Do you remember our first ever issue? Love that cover, a beautiful photograph from a collection at Blue Heron Nature Preserve.
Long live print media!
