On Sunday The Roanoke Times published the Best of Holiday Shopping 2012 guide, which among many other features listed the best places to shop based on our readers’ votes. (For information on how the voting was done, click here.)
We asked readers to vote for the best businesses to buy locally made arts and crafts, Virginia wines and beers, and Virginia Tech and University of Virginia gear. You can check out which businesses made the list here.
We also asked for the best place to buy gifts for your significant other, a cook, a sports fanatic, your pet, clients and for someone who has everything. If you are looking for some guidance in the gift department check out the best of gift ideas lists here.
You’ll also find info on the best weekend shopping destinations, best outlet mall, holiday light displays, bargain hunting and advice on choosing the right Christmas tree.
Are there local businesses that you think readers should have voted for? Let us know by leaving a comment.
