The Diamond City has the goods. If you need it, there’s a business owner ready and waiting to help you make the right decisions when it comes to cars and tattoos or clothes and music. Here are a few of the winners in the Diamond City Best Of 2013 Goods and Services.
Pet lovers spoke up for their furry loved ones and voted Trucksville Dog and Cat Hospital (Best Animal Hospital/Veterinarian) the best place for their animals’ health care, and PetSmart took home two top nods (Best Pet Grooming Services, Best Pet Supply Store) for keeping pets looking their best. Around Town Bicycles (Best Bicycle Shop) won for best place for people to shop who prefer to pedal their way around town on two wheels, while MotorWorld (Best Car Dealership) took home the top spot for those who prefer traveling on four wheels with an engine. And you can keep that new ride squeaky and spotless at Mr. Kleen Kar Wash (Best Car Wash).
If you wanted to catch up on the newest graphic novels or favorite comics, Hoffman’s Music & Comics (Best Comic Book Store) was voted the place to satisfy your illustrated needs. Joe Nardone’s Gallery of Sound is once again voted into the top spot by music lovers looking to pick up their music (Best Place To Buy A New CD, Best Place To Buy A Used CD). If you would rather make your own sweet sounds, head on over to Guitar Center (Best Store For Music Equipment) and pick out your new six string and some recording equipment.
You need to take care of yourself and these Diamond City Best Of Winners will have you relaxed and looking like a million bucks. Kick back and let the staff at Rejuve (Best Day Spa) pamper you for an hour (or maybe even a little longer if you really think you deserve it) and Alexander’s in the Woods Spa (Best Massage) for some deep tissue therapy. Take care of your luscious locks at Déjà Vu Salon (Best Hair Salon) or simply spend a few minutes bronzing your skin at Atomic Tan (Best Tanning Salon). Jos. A Bank (Best Men’s Clothing Store) is the top spot for men to find their new threads, while Showroom 56 (Best Women’s Clothing Store) is the winner of the best place for the Mrs. to pick out a new outfit for a night out on the town. The Salvation Army (Best Vintage Clothing) and My Sister’s Closet (Best Thrift or Consignment Store) are both winners this year where everything old is new again.
Maybe some bling is in your future. Look no further than Tovon & Co. Jewelers (Best Jewelry) for the perfect piece to add to your collection.
A visit to two-time winner Marc’s Tattooing 315 (Best Tattoo Parlor, Best Piercing Parlor) can leave you with some new ink or new hardware through your ears, nose, nipples or bellybutton.
When it comes to beer, The Lion Brewery (Best Local Brewery) is once again the king of the brewskies, while our reader rely on Beer Super (Best Place to Buy Beer) as their trusty supplier of adult beverages on the go.
