Best of the City survey set up to find out your favourites

News Bulletin launches annual survey to determine what people love about Nanaimo

Choosing the best of the city is an ever-changing exercise.

Twelve months can be a long time when we stop to consider all the ways things grow and change and hopefully get better and better here in Nanaimo.

With that in mind, we at the Nanaimo News Bulletin are launching our 2018 Best of the City reader survey this week.

We’ve added a few more categories this year, including Best Law Firm, Best Painting Contractor, Best Dentist and a few others. Also new this year: We want to know where to find the best bathroom in the city, for when you’re out and about and you’ve really gotta go.

We’ve kept all the categories that we think our readers like to weigh in on, such as Best Place to Get a Nanaimo Bar, Best Fish and Chips, Best Restaurant, Best Customer Service and many more.

RELATED: Best of the City 2017

We look forward to compiling all the votes and packaging them for our readers in our annual Best of the City magazine that will be published in June.

In the meantime, we’re asking for votes. We want to know what you think because the more people who participate, the more complete the picture we’ll have. We know there are a lot of people keen to vote for their favourites, so we hope you’ll take the time to provide the perspectives needed to balance things out.

Also, your favourite businesses surely appreciate your votes. Not only do the top three vote-getters receive acknowledgement in our Best of the City magazine, but we’ll profile some of the winners in the magazine, too, and we’ll distribute certificates and shiny plaques.

Online voting begins today at www.nanaimobulletin.com/contests. Everyone who enters will get their name in a draw for a $250 gas card courtesy Mid Island Co-Op.

Thanks in advance to all readers who will help us make Best of the City the best it can be. We look forward to sharing the results and celebrating the best things about Nanaimo.
