Friday nights just got livelier in downtown Troy! Thanks to the Marketing Committee of Troy Main Street, a monthly event has been added to the calendar. More than 20 businesses will stay open late on the last Friday of each month, starting on April 24.
Organizers have modeled the “Friday Night Shop Hop” after similar initiatives in other cities and towns such as the Short North’s “Gallery Hop”, “Urban Nights” in Dayton, and “First Fridays” in Yellow Springs, Columbus, Dayton, and Greenville. These recurring events are aimed at bringing shoppers and diners to the heart of the community.
David Fair, Troy Main Street Marketing Chairperson explains, “I’m looking forward to the first Friday Night Shop Hop which kicks off this month. Previous events where businesses stay open late on Friday have been very successful and I anticipate the “Hop” will be as well. Downtown Troy has many specialty shops and I am pleased at the number of them who will be participating.”
Guests can expect to see many great happenings inside the charming storefronts along multiple blocks of Market and Main Streets. Maps will be available at each of the participating businesses. The Shop Hop is perfect for a date, girls’ night out, or fun family event. Come downtown to do some shopping in the amazing specialty stores and grab a bite to eat in our wonderful restaurants.
Downtown Troy is the place to be each month for the Friday Night Shop Hop! For additional details and a list of participating businesses, visitwww.TroyMainStreet.org or call 937-339-5455.
