And, as we know, the customer (and their vote) is never wrong. 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.

customer excellence, consider this your guide to who your fellow Kamloopsians know, love and trust with their business. Hang on to it and use it the next time you’re looking for a service, an experience or something new to try – and watch for the coveted Kamloops This Week Readers’ Choice plaques hanging in your local business as the ultimate seal of approval from your community. 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.

Your patronage lets us tell the stories of this business community in print every week and online all the time — and also helps us support hundreds of local groups and organizations with hundreds of thousands of dollars in advertising support. That’s the power of shopping local. The next time you are on a social media site and someone poses a question, asking for tips on the best restaurant or best auto dealership or best veterinarian in Kamloops, the easy thing to do is point them to this publication (which is also at kamloopsthisweek.com).

Thank you Kamloops for your amazing support over the past year.
