Business Registration

There is no cost for a business located within Marquette’s Downtown District to participate in Ladies Night, but each participating business is asked to contribute one item to the gift baskets in the form of merchandise or a gift certificate. Shoppers will register for coveted gift baskets valued over $800 at each business by getting a passport stamped. Passports are used as a way to track overall participation at Ladies Night. Gift basket items will be collected on Monday, November 7. It takes several hours to get to all of the participants and businesses are asked to have their item ready at the cashier to avoid having to make multiple trips.

Business registration is now closed. If your business is interested in participating, please contact the DDA Office at 228-9475.
