READERS CHOICE AWARDS

RETAIL/SERVICES

2 016 La Jolla’s Top Picks of 2016 n the one hand, our 2016 Readers Choice Award winners list in the retail/services area features lots of longtime businesses that enjoy a solid clientele; on the other, we have a bunch of these sharp young cookies making a go of things amid a so-so economic climate. Either side has a lot to gain from the efforts that got their businesses on our roster -- but the list is your creation, because you took the time to seek out La Jolla’s best of the best, and you voted accordingly. Thanks for playing, and we mean that!

O

Weight loss clinics, bookstores, CPAs, banks, physicians, markets, hotels and about 917 more: Here’s your ultimate directory of the brightest stars in La Jolla retail, authored by you and your neighbors. If you’re looking for a store that carries that oneof-a-kind gift this season, check out where our readers have found the perfect item. If you’re

deep into some home improvement and in need of an electrical contractor, see who our readers voted the best in the history of the universe. If your computer suddenly crashed and left you in a lurch, find out who in the Village is known among the readers for speedy, reliable repair. Above all: If you see a local venue proudly displaying its Readers Choice Award, stop in and pass along your appreciation to the manager. Yeah, you chose the winners, but he’s working like a dog to hold up his end of the recognition and make La Jolla a shining example of community business ownership. Now that you’ve spoken through your votes, we’d like to take the floor for just a second and thank the business community for its tireless service in making the Village all it can be. In a very real way, every venue in the neighborhood deserves an honorable mention.

The people have spoken, the votes have been tabulated and the results of our fifth annual La Jolla Village News Readers Choice Awards are in! Many are repeat winners, meaning friendly service and good value are timeless, while others are new businesses that have sparkled from the get-go. Our categories cover all the things that residents can find right in La Jolla, from yoga and beauty salons to banks, grocery stores, dry cleaners and everything in between. Ballots were printed in La Jolla Village News for several weeks and also posted on our website, www.sdnews.com. Although our poll is not scientific, we think it gives a pretty good idea of the people and places that give La Jolla its sterling reputation. We hope these awards will delight those who aspire to excellence every day and inspire new businesses to go the extra mile — with a smile — in these tough economic times. La Jolla Village News would like to thank all the readers who took the time to single out the businesses and merchants who make the Jewel a priceless treasure. And to the winners — we salute you!

Trader Joes It all started in the 1950s! Would you believe they started out as a small chain of convenience stores? It’s true.

Way back in 1958. They were called Pronto Markets. In '67, the founder, the original Trader Joe, changed the name (yes, to Trader Joe’s) and the way they do business. Stores got bigger, decked the walls with cedar planks and the crew dressed in cool Hawaiian shirts. Most importantly, they started putting innovative, hardto-find, great-tasting foods in the Trader Joe’s name. That cut costs and saved you money. Still does.

Sometimes your styles may change, but many people stay the same and can lessen in intensity. The styles lessen in intensity because you’ve learned information and strategies to deal with situations and challenges. Stay in tune with what healthy behaviors have come easily and which ones are trickier. Be aware of challenging situations, and continue to use strategies to support your weight maintenance goals.
