2020 Reader’s Choice Winners / Thursday, Aug. 6, 2020


From our Publisher ...

Our readers have chosen their Stillwater favorites! The Stillwater News Press Readers’ Choice Best of Stillwater edition is one of our most anticipated sections of the year. It’s our annual publication where readers choose their favorites in more than 100 categories. 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 purchase services, and who use this as a guide in their own consumer choices. Votes were cast online and the number of those who vote continues to climb each 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.

Jill Hunt

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 the 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 sections, mention the award to them. It feels good to be recognized. Look for the certificates in their businesses or the window sticker featuring the logo on the front of this section. Thanks again to the readers who participated in the contest, and to the many local businesses that make this community proud.

Thank you for your

1 Place Vote! st

We’re honored our residents enjoy C Star living!
