COLLEGE HILL BUSINESSES

LEARN MORE ABOUT THE GREAT BUSINESSES OF COLLEGE HILL

The College Hill Partnership’s featured business for the month of August is Mohair Pear, located at 2205 College Street. Known as a college town boutique, Mohair Pear offers both new and vintage apparel for men and women, but their inventory does not stop there; they also feature a number of lifestyle products to complement their clothing. Among these offerings are handmade gifts and accessories, record players and vinyl, and a full line of body jewelry with a piercing professional included as a part of their knowledgeable and friendly staff.

In addition, every fall the store holds the Pear Fair, an annual open-air indie craft fair showcasing the work of vendors both local and from around the Midwest. This year, the Pear Fair will be held on Saturday, September 17th from 11am-5pm.

If you are looking for a boutique with as much character as it has style, look no further than Mohair Pear.

ABOUT COLLEGE HILL PARTNERSHIP

Since 2009, the CHP has brought together businesses, landlords, neighborhood residents, students, and the university to revitalize the College Hill neighborhood.

andy fuchtman college hill partnership presidentIn just a few years, we have realized many improvements with the help of the city, including the new pedestrian-friendly streetscape with brick sidewalks, flower and tree plantings, and festive banners. To continue the improvements, we also now have a TIF (Tax Increment Finance) District in the Hill’s commercial area, which gives developers financial incentives, and will soon have in place a RID (Residential Improvement District), which gives residence owners (including landlords) tax breaks on major façade improvements.

The CHP provides support to the Hill’s best cultural traditions like the College Hill Arts Festival in July, the Neighborhood Picnic in August, and the Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony in December. We’ve also begun new events like the Hill Yes! Auction in April, and festivals in Pettersen Plaza. Other cultural events have also emerged to fit the distinctive culture of the Hill, such as Mohair Pear’s successful Pear Fair D.I.Y Craft and Design Event and their Zombie Walk.

If you have ideas for making College Hill a better place to live, work, and play, let us know. We appreciate your participation and support.
