HOUGHTON — Friday Night is Ladies Night in Downtown Houghton. This year’s event will be bigger than ever.
Shops are open late to offer great deals and a great time. On Friday November 13th, many stores stay open from 5–8pm for this year’s Ladies Night in downtown Houghton.
The event is ideal for early holiday shopping or just a fun night out. And this year, Ladies Night will be bigger than ever.
City of Houghton Business Development Director Susie Landers said, “We have been growing so much over the years that now we actually have businesses coming in just for that weekend. So I want to remind everyone…don’t just hit those spots that you know of. Take the walk, enjoy visiting with people as you go and look in all the different store–fronts because you might just be surprised what has sprung up.”
Ladies Night started years ago as an idea for a one time event. Since then, it’s grown into a can’t miss annual shopping night.
Even though the event is called “Ladies Night”, it’s not just for the ladies. Men are welcome to participate and get a head start to their holiday shopping as well.
The event is a great reason to come see what Downtown Houghton has to offer.
Landers said, “Sometimes you just need to take that walk downtown and realize how many new stores we have and what we actually have to offer. Many people, after the weekend, will come to me and say ‘Wow, I can’t believe we had that downtown.’ It’s another way of just showing that you don’t always have to go out of town or get online. Keep your business and keep your dollars local.”
