Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to Vox.com, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

The 2013 Racked Awards are coming up this Thursday. To refresh, there are twelve categories this year; three were open to a reader vote, and the other nine will be chosen by Racked editors. All of the nominees represent the best and brightest in local retail and shopping, and the awards range from the Best New Store to the Coolest Pop-Up Shop.

We'll post (and toast!) the full list of winners on the 10th, but until then, check out all of the nominees below.
