New, 6 comments

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, 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.

Here in the Racked universe, we are simply a couple weeks away from the third annual Racked Awards celebration in New York. Stores, brands, and designers nationwide will be considered for bragging rights and a title in dozens of categories, including eight divisions here in Boston. Three winners have been crowned already in a reader vote while the other five champs will be determined by our editorial staff in the following niche groups. Here's your chance to scope out the Bay State contenders.

All winners will be announced (and celebrated!) on Thursday, October 10.
