Best of the City: it’s time to tell us your favourites

Where’s the best place to get a Nanaimo bar? Meet for coffee? Walk your dog? Let us know

It’s time to take stock of our favourites, and consider what’s remained at the top, or what’s risen there.

We at the Nanaimo News Bulletin are launching our 2019 Best of the City reader survey today, April 30.

We hope our readers are ready and willing to weigh in on a range of categories such as Best Place to Get a Nanaimo Bar, Best Fish and Chips, Best Restaurant, Best Customer Service and many more. We want to know where you like to shop, go for coffee, walk your dog. All of us can list off a lot of our favourite things about Nanaimo, but it’s fun to find out what our friends and neighbours like, too.

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.
