Welcome to the 2023 Kamloops This Week Readers’ Choice Awards, widely acknowledged as the gold standard among customer service accolades in the Tournament Capital.
The Readers’ Choice Awards are considered the cream of the crop in the local business world because it is the customers of these shops who weigh in with their votes. And, as we know, the customer (and their vote) is always right.
A Kamloops This Week Readers’ Choice Award signifies customer service like no other honour and is a benchmark against which all other businesses can measure themselves.
The 2023 Kamloops This Week Readers’ Choice Awards winners (and runners-up) are in these pages, a process that included tallying tens of thousands of votes cast in more than 200 categories,
with hundreds of businesses nominated.
The Readers’ Choice Awards date back more than a quarter-century, with some businesses featured in these pages having a long history of excellence and others just beginning their legacy.
Kamloops is fortunate to have so many community-minded, locally owned companies that are committed to quality and customer service.
Along with being a publication honouring businesses for their customer excellence, consider this your guide in finding the best of the best, businesses you can trust, when shopping in Kamloops.
When out and about, watch for the coveted Kamloops This Week Readers’ Choice Awards plaques hanging in local businesses as they are the ultimate seal of approval from your fellow residents.
We congratulate all businesses listed in this publication — and we thank them for their advertising support in these pages, in the pages of KTW and online throughout the year. Their patronage allows us to tell the stories of the city’s business community in print every week and online all the time. It also helps us support hundreds of local groups and organizations with hundreds of thousands of dollars in advertising support.
The KTW Readers’ Choice Awards exemplify the power — and importance — of shopping local.
The next time someone poses a question, online or in person, asking for tips on the best restaurant or the best bicycle shop or the best dentist in Kamloops, the easy thing to do is point them to this publication (which can also be found online at kamloopsthisweek.com).
