Thank you, readers. You voted and we listened.
The Monticello Times and Great River Weekend stand ready to announce the 2013 Readers’ Choice Award winners.
Earlier this winter, hundreds of our loyal newspaper and website readers took time to vote for their favorite Great River Area business and service providers in almost a dozen different categories: automotive, banking and financial, education, food and drink, health and beauty, home and garden, medical, real estate, recreation, religion, style and fashion and other shopping and services.
This year’s winners were selected by print and online readers during a six-week contest period.
You don’t need to wait for someone to open Oscar-style announcement envelopes to learn who’s been selected the best of the best.
Just turn to the Readers’ Choice special section in this Sunday’s Great River Weekend and next Thursday’s Monticello Times for the full list of winners.
The 2013 Great River Area Readers’ Choice Awards recognize and exemplify all-around local business excellence.
It doesn’t take long before award recipients proudly start displaying their award certificates in storefronts and business entrances.
Keeping that in mind, here’s a hearty congratulations to this year’s hard-working winners.
The editorial and advertising staff at the Monticello Times and Great River Weekend urge you to support these award-winning businesses year-round.
