The North Shore News recently published the results of its annual Readers’ Choice survey, and once again Lynn Valley merchants were well-represented. It’s been great to see the congratulations showing up on our Facebook wall, as local people give each other a virtual pat on the back.
We’ve been looking forward to publishing the names of the winners and adding our own kudos, but my goodness – there were so many LV winners and honorable mentions it was a bigger job than we thought to compile the complete list!
But now here it is, for your reference – and if you haven’t tried out some of these local shops and services, they’re well-recommended by your North Shore neighbours!
Special congratulations to the Black Bear Neighbourhood Pub and Delany’s Coffee House, awarded ‘platinum’ in their categories for years of uninterrupted wins!
