When was the last time you ate somewhere, bought something or hired someone without first "Googling" the business or product and reading online reviews?
Nowadays, people count on online reviews to help them make sound decisions when choosing a product or service.
We at Trenton Patch want to provide an extensive list of reviews of local businesses to help our readers make more informed decisions when doing anything from choosing a restaurant to selecting an auto repair shop or from finding an affordable ceiling fan to getting a tattoo.
Here's where you come in.
Contest: Trenton Patch is offering one lucky reviewer a $50 gift card to for simply reviewing a local business found in our directory section called Places.
A winner will be selected at random at the close of the contest at 10 p.m. Thursday, May 31, 2012.
Entering to win could not be easier:
