Beginning in Fall 2018, we began presenting a Merchant Design Award at our biannual Learn It Up! events. When the COVID-19 pandemic happened in 2020, we honored these award winners at our annual meetings. This award recognizes a district merchant for their attractive business design and enhancement of the visitor experience.

Below is a list of the past Merchant Design Award winners. We thank them for being positive additions to the Hillsborough Street community!
