Times & EDC partner for Readers' Choice Awards


ALEXANDER COUNTY, NC (September 2, 2014)
– Which restaurant has the best cheeseburger in Alexander County? Or who’s the best barber, electrician, or mechanic? What’s your favorite school, church, or civic club? You can cast your vote in the 2014 Readers’ Choice Awards. 

This local awards program is being sponsored by the Alexander County Economic Development Corporation (EDC) and The Taylorsville Times with the objective of promoting local businesses in Alexander County and supporting the EDC’s “Buy Local” campaign.

The awards survey contains approximately 90 blanks in which residents can vote for their favorite businesses. Categories include: Dining Out; Having Fun; Professional Services; Community Favorite; Shopping; Health & Wellness; Financial; Automotive; and Out-of-County Favorites.

“This awards program is the perfect opportunity to vote for your favorite businesses, and help promote them to others,” said Gary Herman, Small Business Development Coordinator for the EDC. “This goes hand-in-hand with the EDC’s ‘Buy Local’ campaign as we strive to make our residents more aware of the importance of supporting our local merchants.”

The survey will run for six (6) weeks with a deadline of October 10. The survey will be available online at www.AlexanderEDC.org/survey, or you can find the survey in each issue of The Taylorsville Times (full page or an insert) through October 10. Those who complete the paper survey in the newspaper should mail it to: Alexander County EDC, Attn: Awards, 621 Liledoun Road, Taylorsville, NC 28681.

To help encourage participation in the Reader’s Choice Awards, a random survey respondent will be chosen after the second, fourth, and sixth week and will win $50 each. Surveys should be as complete as possible.

After the October 10 deadline, survey results will be compiled and the winning businesses will be presented with a framed certificate. The results will be available in a special tabloid in The Taylorsville Times, as well as on the EDC’s website at www.AlexanderEDC.org.
