Welcome to The Readers’ Choice
Attention to detail. Unparalleled customer service. Unflinchingly high standards. These are just some of the qualities that separate the best from the rest. Fortunately for the people who live and shop in Nacogdoches, there are many merchants and service providers here who display all of these qualities and more. And, their efforts have not gone unnoticed. Readers of The Daily Sentinel, once again, made their voices heard in the annual Readers’ Choice Best of Nacogdoches competition. From car washes to clothing, hotels to hamburgers, doctors to day care centers and everything in between, our readers told us who they think deserves to be known as “The Best of Nacogdoches.” We tallied the entries and have listed the winners and runners-up in this special section. The first place winners are listed in bold with the runner-up listed below the winner in each category. Also, you’ll notice that many of the merchants honored for 2013 chose to purchase advertising to thank the people who recognize their efforts and took time to vote. Return the favor. Take some time to read their ads, learn what they have to offer, and make a note to stop by their businesses to see why they are considered among “The Best of Nacogdoches.”
