Congratulations Best of Winners from Pacific Grove!

The Pacific Grove Chamber of Commerce would like to congratulate over two dozen businesses in our membership who were awarded “Best of Monterey County” awards for 2019. The Monterey County Weekly puts together a special issue every year honoring over 100 unique and wonderful businesses throughout Monterey County and Pacific Grove was well-represented this year. The Chamber supports these recognitions, which are usually accompanied with a write-up on each business, and the positive impact they have on businesses during the slow season.
