EDITOR’S

NOTE

TWENTY-EIGHTEEN

T

wenty-five years. A quarter-century. That is how long the Denton Record-Chronicle has been honoring the best local businesses, leading up to this moment – the publication of the 25th anniversary edition of the Best of Denton. Much has changed during that time, but one truism has remained – the cream always rises to the top. What you will find inside these pages is the cream of the crop in Denton, the best local businesses as selected by you and your neighbors.

We at the Record-Chronicle are pleased to provide this magazine as a resource to residents and visitors alike, your go-to source for local businesses that do it right. To be named a Best of Denton winner is an honor area businesses take to heart, as demonstrated through the blue ribbon banners hung in shop windows and the advertising campaigns you will see throughout the year. Twenty-five years. It’s a long time to document the exceptional peaks of the local business landscape. But it’s also a testament to the lasting importance of a thriving local business climate. We hope you hold onto this magazine, taking the time to pore over its pages, highlighting the winners you selected yourself and discovering your new favorite destinations. And we hope you reinforce the value of good business in Denton by patronizing and congratulating the winners listed within. Sean McCrory Executive Editor DE-1679327-01

Thank you Denton, for voting Caring For Women

BEST OB/GYN Five Years In A Row! Know your facility offers the Genius™ 3D Mammography™ exam by Hologic! When asked about 3D™ Mammograms...

• Use a simple analogy to explain the procedure: When looking at a closed book, you have no way of knowing what is on each page. By opening the book and flipping through the pages you are then able to read the book. A Genius™ 3D™ exam works similarly, taking many pictures, like pages of a book, which the radiologist can then look through. This results in a more accurate mammogram, especially for women with dense breasts!1,2

DE-1678918-01

Only the Genius™ 3D Mammography™ exam is FDA approved as superior for women with dense breasts compared to 2D alone.1-2

The Genius™ 3D Mammography™ exam detects 2065% more invasive breast cancers compared to 2D alone.4

The Genius™ 3D Mammography™ exam reduces callbacks by up to 40% compared to 2D alone.2-3

Scott A. Garoutte, MD Breast Imaging Specialist

Q: What steps do you take to ensure a quality product or service? A: We pay attention to details. We do not compromise our integrity or service with anything less then the best. Q: How does your experience serve your customers? A: As a team we collectively have over 100 years of jewelry experience. We know how to utilize all our resources to satisfy our customer's jewelry needs. Q: What differentiates your business in the marketplace? A: We have serviced the Denton area for many generations. We are your "Grandparents jewelers" and yet are also modern and relevant. Runners-up: Nasr Bros. Jewelers Honorable Mention: Sleeping Lizzards

Q: What does your business specialize in? A: Books, records, CDs, DVDs/BluRays, and board games Q: What steps do you take to ensure a quality product or service? A: Although most of our stock is second-hand (and priced accordingly), we are extremely picky about the condition it is in and also do our best to ensure that we buy a mix of popular items, classics, and oddball obscurities. When it comes to brand new LPs, Don (the store’s owner and a lifelong music collector) pays attention to what is hippest, to what is most popular, and to what collectors with more esoteric tastes are looking for. Q: How does your experience serve your customers? A: Our staff is very knowledgeable about a wide range of topics (each with their own interests, of course). This means that when it comes to any topic, there is someone here who can help you find what you are looking for or make suggestions based on what you have enjoyed in the past. Furthermore, we have many staff members who have been in the book and music business for ten years or more (in some cases, for several decades), so we’re able to make you fair offers on items you bring to sell to us, and are able to answer questions about our stock and books and media in. Runners-up: Barnes & Noble Honorable Mention: Mardel Christian & Education

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to serve you and your family for the past 14 years. I look forward to working together with you toward your financial goals in the future.
