First Choice, Primary Voice

For more information on the 2017 Downtown Hillsborough construction projects, please visit the Town of Hillsborough website. Remember, downtown shops, restaurants, and bars will remain open for the duration of the project, estimated to be completed by November 2017. 


Merchants of Historic Hillsborough seek to build a foundation for the future of Hillsborough merchants. Our goal is to create an environment for independent development in Hillsborough while focusing on:

Appearance | Economic Development | 

Hillsborough Merchants meetings are held the 2nd Tuesday of every month at 10:00am. Meetings are held at the Chamber Office (121 N. Churton Street, Suite 1C, Hillsborough, NC 27278).

If you would like to be added to the Hillsborough Merchants mailing list, please email

Come shop and support our local, small businesses as you shop for the holidays at Small Business Saturday.  Check-in first at the welcome station at the Orange County Public Library, 137 West Margaret Lane in Downtown Hillsborough, for information on participating businesses and items to get your shopping off to the right start!  Love Tribe Acoustic will also be performing on the Old Courthouse Lawn in Downtown from 1 to 4 p.m

This November 25th, we ask our amazing community to join the celebration and keep the momentum going. #shoplocal #hillsboroughlove #shopsmall
