Readers' Choice: Southbury Package Stores

When you're looking for spirits, where do you go?

This week's Readers' Choice topic is all about the adults. We want to know where you go when you're looking for that perfect bottle of wine, a selection of beer or your favorite spirit. Tell us who gets your vote for best package store in town and why.

Below is a list of package stores we have registered in our continuously updated Southbury Patch Places directory. Click on any of them to get to a page dedicated to that liquor store and to rate and review it.

Please also tell us in the comment thread if any package stores are missing from the list and why they're the best—we'll add them to the poll and create a new Patch Places listing for them. If you own a liquor store in town, you can "claim" your free business listing or even become a small business blogger on Southbury Patch!

Voting in the poll below is open until 9 a.m. Friday. We will announce the winner at 12 p.m. Friday. Since the poll isn't scientific, it's not the sole determinant of a Readers' Choice winner. Our local editor will determine winner based on a point system in which poll results and ratings are considered equally. Only the top three finishers will receive points. In the event of a tie, the editor will determine the winner based on which business has the highest combined number of positive comments and positive reviews on its directory listings. See our rules in the attached PDF for more information.

...and until someone can correct the present flaw and validate that only ONE vote per individual polled applies (and we know for FACT it DOESN'T), ALL Patch informal polls will be just that - INFORMAL and specifically "on your honor"... Unfortunately with human nature what it is, I will continue to think of these polls as I do those in China, Russia and most of the African continent... breach-able and highly suspect. And, "that is THAT".

only 189 people voted in this survey. I wouldn't say that's convincing enough a number to say the people of Southbury chose Lake as the favored store. Clearly not enough people knew about this survey and it holds little value.

The polls are a nice idea and fun, but I agree with Roband Webster that the voting process is fately flawed. Unfortunately that leads to numerous (and frequently rude and insulting) discussions. Dan, I really enjoy the Patch, but feel that unless you can institute a one vote/one reader restriction, this feature distracts from the quality of the Patch. Please, let' s all agree to put the "favorite package store" survey behind us and work towards fixing the flaw before conducting future "favorite" surveys. .
