From June 13th through to the end of August, 27 retails shops in downtown Peterborough will be open until 8 p.m. every Thursday and Friday evening as part of a “Open Late ‘Til Eight” initiative.
“Shopping today is all about convenience and it’s important for our local shops to be open when it’s convenient for their customers,” says Terry Guiel, Executive Director of the Peterborough Downtown Business Improvement Area.
“We know it’s important to be open when our customers are wanting to shop,” adds Holly Butler, manager at Iceman Video Games in the downtown. “Staying open late keeps people shopping local.”

Not only are the hours convenient, but parking downtown is free after 6 p.m. So take advantage of the extra hours, and support your local downtown businesses. Shop, and then stay downtown and grab a bite at one of your fave restaurants.
