At Nextdoor, we love local. It’s at the heart of everything we do. When we love local, we support the vibrant local businesses that make up our communities and help neighbors everywhere build happier, healthier, and more connected places to call home.
There are numerous benefits to shopping local – it helps improve our local economies, reduces environmental impact, creates more job opportunities, and helps us feel connected to our greater community.
So, to help each of you love local in 2019, we are making it easier than ever to discover the best your neighborhood has to offer with the release of our Neighborhood Favorites. Neighborhood Favorites is an annual awards program that helps celebrate and recognize the best businesses in local communities across the United States by amplifying what every business owner cherishes – word of mouth. Throughout October 2018, we asked neighbors to vote on their favorite local businesses, and, boy, did neighbors share a lot of local love. In fact, more than 300,000 local businesses have been recognized as a Neighborhood Favorite this year.
From bakeries and bike shops, to nail salons and grocery stores, our Neighborhood Favorites show us the positive impact local businesses have on one’s neighborhood experience and our local ecosystems as a whole. 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.
We are proud to celebrate the local businesses that support our communities every day on Nextdoor, and challenge neighbors across the globe to join us in loving local in 2019 and for years to come.
Nextdoor is a powerful tool to connect local businesses with verified residents in their community. If you were voted a Neighborhood Favorite this year, or would like to be considered by neighbors next year, be sure to claim your free Nextdoor business page by visiting nextdoor.com/business.
