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.
On Thursday, October 10th, we'll be heading to New York to toast the winners of our third annual Racked Awards, which highlights the best and brightest stars in local retail. Last week we held three Readers' Choice polls, where you voted Urban Outfitters Malibu for Best New Store, Mohawk Man for Best Men's Store and Just One Eye for the store that's So Hot Right Now. Because limiting LA's stellar shopping scene to only three categories would be straight-up rude, we've determined eight more shiny awards to dole out.
Without further ado, meet our Editor's Choice nominees below. Look out for our selected winners, who will be crowned with the oh-so-stylish Golden Turbans above, on October 10th!
