The residents of Sooke love their local businesses! This was evident by the overwhelming number of nominations received by the Sooke Region Chamber of Commerce by the March 14 deadline for the upcoming Annual Business Excellence Awards.
The awards were open to all Sooke region businesses and covered a variety of categories, such as:
• Professional Services
• Retail Excellence
• Dining Excellence
• Sustainability Leadership
• Development Excellence
• Not-for-Profit Organization
• Small Business of the Year
• Business of the Year
A panel of three unaffiliated judges from the community spent many hours on the afternoon of Saturday, March 15 deliberating over the hundreds of excellent nominations to narrow it down to a select few finalists and winners. It was a daunting task due to the incredible number of nominations and the many compelling reasons given by Sooke residents for the deserving nominees.
A complete list of all the nominee’s are available at http://www.sookeregionchamber.com/gcalendar-2/business-excellence-awards and will also appear in next weeks edition of the Sooke News Mirror.
