2017 Readers’ Choice • Thursday, August 17, 2017

Our readers choose their favorites The Stillwater News Press Readers’ Choice edition is always one of our most anticipated sections of the year. It’s our annual publication where our readers choose their favorites in more than 150 categories in and around Stillwater and Payne County. This section is meant as a celebration of those businesses, but also as a resource for readers who want to know the most popular places to eat, shop or purchases services, and who use this as a guide in their own consumer Dale Brendel choices. Stillwater News Press Publisher With more people voting online than ever before, we had a record number of votes tallied this year. Some of the races were landslide wins for some familiar names on the local business scene, while others were extremely close – separated by only a few votes – including our first ever tie (see Favorite Bank category). All the businesses and organizations that earned honors in this section have good reason to be proud. It’s always nice to win an award, but to be named a favorite by readers of the local newspaper carries extra significance. There’s plenty of research to confirm that local newspaper subscribers tend to be the best informed and most community-minded residents. We sure think News Press readers are here in Stillwater. We’re glad to have them as our customers, and we know the businesses listed here are too. Next time you are visiting or talking to one of those honored in the section, mention the award to them. It feels good to be recognized. And look for the framed certificate or the new sticker featuring the logo on the front of this section. Thanks again to all our readers who participated in the survey, and to the many local businesses that make this community proud!

Thank you Stillwater for your continued support over the years! GREAT SAVINGS •WEEKLY SPECIALS • FRIENDLY & KNOWLEDGEABLE STAFF
