Ladies and gentlemen, it's time to unveil the winners of the 2013 Racked Awards for San Francisco. Our victors represent the best of retail in SF across 12 categories. The competition was fierce and the decisions were near impossible, because all of the nominees work incredibly hard and kick ass at what they do.
Before we list the winners, let's go over the rules and logistics. For the first nine categories listed below, the Racked SF staff chose a winner after much deliberation. For the final three, we asked readers to choose between an editor-chosen list of nominees. Nominees and winners alike will be feted at a party tonight in Manhattan. San Francisco winners should watch their mail for their coveted prize: the official golden turban of the Racked Awards. And now, without further ado, the winners in San Franciso.
