from the Owensboro Messenger-Inquirer’s

Not only are our Readers’ Choice Awards a great way to find out the best place for this or that in Owensboro, they also celebrate what makes our city special. They help residents and visitors alike craft a unique experience exploring our area, and they celebrate the hardworking businesses that are the backbone of our community. When local shops and services make an impact on customers, they share those experiences with us via our Readers’ Choice Awards. They vote because they care. And since their patronage drives our local economy, their opinions matter significantly.

Our annual Readers’ Choice Awards resonate with readers because we ask them what they love about our community. Where’s the best place to find antiques, or sample burgoo, or consult a financial expert, or contract a roofer, or enjoy a family outing? The locals tell us, and in these pages, we pass the word onto you.

Supporting local businesses is MORE IMPORTANT THAN EVER. From the overwhelming response the Messenger-Inquirer receives each year for its READERS’ CHOICE AWARDS, it’s clear how much residents LOVE our LOCAL businesses. Now, that LOYALTY is shining through, as residents are opening their wallets more than ever before and bolstering the local ECONOMY. Local businesses do more than turn a profit: They RAISE FUNDS for charities and nonprofits, DONATE to educational and arts programs, and MEET THE NEEDS of countless workers and their families. They SPONSOR beloved community events and RAISE AWARENESS of important issues. They PARTNER with and CHEER on each other. Local businesses are made up of our friends and neighbors; when we support them, we STRENGTHEN our own community. Supporting local businesses is a demonstration of how our COMPASSION binds us together. Despite facing global economic uncertainty, Owensboro remains RESILIENT, as do its people. Together, we’re building a STRONGER, BRIGHTER FUTURE for our community. Messenger-Inquirer’s Readers’ Choice 2020

Our mission is to provide high quality, efficient and responsive professional services to businesses, nonprofit, governmental organizations and individuals, principally in the Owensboro and the tri-state area. The focus of all our services is to help our clients identify and achieve their goals.

It’s about listening to you carefully and hearing, really hearing, the story of a lifetime. It’s about honoring that story and thoughtfully helping you share what it has meant to you. It’s about respect for you and your family, regardless of background or faith, of belief or race. It’s about your feelings, appreciating they are yours alone and can’t be fully known by anyone else. It’s about your circumstance and serving within it. It’s about your days to come and reaching out with a purely helping hand. It’s about what is truly important. It’s about you.

Independence Bank has changed a lot since the revolution began, growing from $40 million in total assets to $2.6 billion, and to a bank family made up of 400+ employees. Two things have remained a consistent part of our mission; our dedication to the people and to our communities. In 2019, we gave back over $1.4 million to the communities we serve. It’s easy to credit the work we do to who we are, but what makes Independence Bank’s relationship with Owensboro special is that we reinvest in this community because it’s our home, too. We recognize that local businesses drive our community forward, we invest in local students because they are our future leaders, and we help those in need because when our community is stronger, we all succeed. We call that local love, and when you give local love, you get local love. We are grateful for the continued support from our community and say thank you for choosing to invest in us so that we can invest in you.

Daviess County Teachers Federal Credit Union FINANCIAL INSTITUTION SILVER (TIE) We are honored to once again be chosen as your Reader’s Choice Winner. In 2018, we were chosen as Platinum and this year we return as Silver! Thank you! In 1971, Daviess County Teachers Federal Credit Union was founded and chartered by 10 initial members who recognized a need right here in Owensboro, Kentucky starting simply as a savings option for the teachers of the Daviess County Public Schools. Without their commitment, DCTFCU would not have become the progressive credit union it is today. What began as a small organization has now grown into a full-service financial institution expanding in membership and growing to meet the needs of our members and our community. Our whole philosophy is based on member service and we believe one of our biggest strengths has always been our care and concern for members and their families. We recognize that our success and reputation depends on the effectiveness of our workforce, and because of that, we listen to our members and seek to provide products and services that can help enhance personal finances. From the convenience of Mobile Check Deposit and Digital Wallets to the endless benefits of free financial literacy tools and courses, we are constantly evolving to create the best overall banking experience. Our credit union is not-for-profit and owned by our members. Members of the community. YOU! We are encouraged by your enthusiasm to see all of us represented as we strive for excellence in security, privacy, member service, and convenience. When you stand behind a credit union, you are standing behind a financial institution that you have ownership in and we wouldn’t be here without you. Thank you.

We at Whittaker Guns truly value your support and patronage! We’ve expanded our offerings in recent years well beyond firearms. We continue to fill holes in our offerings on an annual basis. Aside from catering to the firearms enthusiast, we now cater to the outdoor sportsmen — men, women and children. Our archery department is located in the back of the store — Cedarstix Archery and Outdoors — and is the largest archery retailer in Kentucky. We’ve listened to your requests and carry full lines of hunting clothing and footwear. In 2020, we opened our ears to your suggestions again and added a large fishing department to the store as well. As most of you know, the discount store in our old showroom is restocked weekly and has ample opportunities for the bargain shopper. Our original philosophy, to maintain a large selection while providing the customer with the best price possible and exceptional customer service, is still our mission. Even though we’ve grown through the years, both online and in the retail store, we still strive to maintain a personal relationship with everyone that enters our business.

Founded in 1969, Carpets Unlimited has grown in many ways over the last five decades. We’ve grown in sales to be the largest volume flooring dealer in the tri-state. With the addition of Crandall’s Home Furnishings, we now have more than 140,000 square feet of furniture and flooring. We’ve grown in stature by being named Greater Owensboro Chamber of Commerce Small Business of the Year in 2004. And in 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2020, we were named the Readers’ Choice Platinum Carpet/Flooring Store. We’re humbled by being recognized by our community and surrounding counties. What does this growth mean for our clients? Compare our pricing to our competitors, and you’ll find that we will not be beat on comparable porcelain and ceramic tile, hardwood, laminate, vinyl, furniture or carpet. Our buying power allows us to negotiate the best pricing on the most name brands, including Mohawk, Quickstep, DalTile, Bruce, Armstrong, Ashley, Shaw, Mayo, Southerland Bedding, Jackson, Steinworld and Catnapper. Yes, Carpets Unlimited has grown since 1969, but we’re still small enough to provide the personal touch that makes us the home furnishings and flooring center store that you can depend on. Let us show you what it means to be treated right! Come see us at the corner of Salem Drive and JR Miller Boulevard or in Evansville at 4200 E. Morgan Ave.
