The results are in, and readers have chosen CVS as the Best Place in JP to Buy Candy.
But while the poll results were heavily in favor of the drug store chain's heaping mounds of candy (especially around certain holidays), three local favorites could have won had folks chimed in by rating those businesses this week.
That's because the "Best Of Patch Readers' Choice" contests don't just go by the poll. An equal weight is given to fresh ratings (of up to five stars) made the week of the contest. Even without winning the contest, though, City Feed, Ruggiero's and Fernandez Spa certainly stand out from other local convenience stores and bodegas for their candy selection.
Here are the nominees and their point totals, along with links to their Patch Places pages:
- CVS ( or ) 10 points
- City Feed ( or ) 8 points
- 6 points
- 6 points
CVS will be getting a framed certificate from Patch. Thanks, everyone who participated!
Next week's category is a timely one: Best Place to Do Your Taxes. That contest will begin Monday.
