Congratulations to our local winners

If there is one theme to the last few years of reporting for the Courier, it would have to be the changing landscape of local businesses in La Mesa.

Along La Mesa Boulevard are new shops and restaurants, a new sidewalk and gathering place, and a new business association. In the commercial area along Center Street are new breweries and wineries.

Fletcher Parkway is still growing with new eateries and other businesses alongside the hospital and big-box stores. And University Avenue is currently getting a facelift that will attract new businesses and bolster the existing ones.

In this “Best of La Mesa” issue, our readers shared their favorite local places to eat, drink, be entertained and be served by the business community. We thank our readers for supporting local businesses and taking the time to recognize them by voting.

Speaking of supporting local, in this issue we have a new page of ad sponsors from La Mesa Village Association who are generously supporting your local paper. On page 9, you will find these local businesses in our new “Support Local” ad section. We encourage our readers to support these and all local businesses and help keep our community thriving.

Again, thank you to our readers and congratulations to our “Best Of” winners.
