Sales Manager Kayla DeTienne is incredibly excited to launch this inaugural contest.
“It’s a great opportunity for local businesses to connect with their employees and customers and build excitement for the possibility of being recognized by members of our community,” she said.
DeTienne has been involved with “Best of” contests during her long tenure at the Coeur d’Alene Press and she believes that it has given local businesses a real boost in morale, as well as sales profit.
“Bringing attention to local businesses, unique attractions and celebrating locally made products creates commerce and longevity to the business economy,” she said.
While it is a competition, Alexander feels that it benefits every business, attraction and person that will be nominated.
