Best Auto Body Shop:

Quality Body Works

Quality Body Works has won NCJ's Best Auto Body Shop for the past six years and the BOH voters know exactly why. With more than 40 years of service in Humboldt County, Quality Body Works offers quality collision and autobody repairs. It's the local factory-certified repair facility for Ford, Honda, Nissan, Chrysler, Subaru, Dodge RAM, Jeep, Acura, KIA, Fiat and Acura. Even if your car's make isn't on the list, the shop will ensure your vehicle's repair is of the utmost quality. The staff are also very responsive and communicative about the entire vehicle repair process from the first estimate to contacting and negotiating with insurance agencies and through all the repairs. As someone who's gone to Quality Body Works for auto repairs, I can say the voters once again got it right.

Best Garden Supply Store and Best Nursery:

Pierson's Garden Shop

Pierson's Garden Shop is a paradise. The place is filled with so many different plants for purchase, from tropical plants to succulents and cacti to beautiful flowers and shrubs, and even trees. They've also got vegetable and fruit starters to transplant into your home vegetable garden — full disclosure, my partner and I always come out of Pierson's Garden Shop with at least one new plant — and Pierson's sells seeds if you really want to start from scratch. It's loaded with all the supplies you'll need to keep your plants alive and looking good, like cute and classic pots in all shapes and sizes, the right kind of soil and fertilizer, and wonderful decorations to install in your garden. Pierson's will meet all your gardening dreams and desires, which is why it's no surprise Pierson's Garden Shop won both of these categories. Even if you weren't blessed with a green thumb, Pierson's is the place for you and all your gardening needs.
