With the holidays upon us, there is no better time to discover the many amazing local hotspots that make your community vibrant and unique. Chances are you already know all about the benefits of shopping local – it helps improve our local economies, reduces environmental impact, creates more job opportunities, and more.
Starting today, Nextdoor is making it easier than ever to discover the best your neighborhood has to offer with the release of our 2018 Neighborhood Favorites lists. Neighborhood Favorites is an annual awards program that helps celebrate and recognize the best businesses in local communities across the country by amplifying what every business owner cherishes – word of mouth. Throughout October, we asked members to vote on your favorite local businesses, and today we are unveiling our 2018 winners.
From bakeries and bike shops, to nail salons and grocery stores, these local businesses have captured the love of their local communities and show us the positive impact local businesses have on our local ecosystems.To find your Neighborhood Favorites, simply visit nextdoor.com/favorites. If you are using the mobile app, click the heart icon in the bottom navigation bar.
You can also discover the winning lists for neighborhoods outside your own. If you’re just visiting a neighborhood or wondering who won in the neighborhood you grew up in, you can search for them here (click on the state, city and neighborhood where you would like to see Favorites).
We are proud that Nextdoor is a platform that neighbors use every day to spread the word about favorite local hotspots and drive home the importance of supporting our local economies. We hope you’ll take the opportunity to get to know the local businesses that make your hometown special, and support them this holiday season and all year round!
