ALDERSHOT VILLAGE BIA: Friendly and unique businesses ready to serve you

Come explore the distinct village of Aldershot and Plains Road where a variety of locally owned businesses are eager to serve you. It’s no secret that shopping at a local business offers a truly personal experience. The owners are passionate, knowledgeable and make the effort to get to know you, the customer. Here in Aldershot, a large portion of its business owners are also residents of the community, and they’ve made developing long-lasting customer relationships a priority. When you walk through their doors, expect a friendly greeting and welcoming atmosphere—it’s all part of the charm of this cozy corridor with the small-town feel. 

The abundance of free, easy-to-access parking along Plains Road makes running your multiple errands a snap. You can forget the stress of searching for a spot and parking time limits – move at your own pace. If cycling is more your style, the freshly paved bike lanes in Aldershot’s west end offer more comfort and safety than ever before. 

The Aldershot BIA turns 20 years old in 2024, and beautification efforts are underway to transform the area into a unique shopping and business district that can increasingly cater to the needs of the surrounding community. 

“It is exciting to see the growth in Aldershot as Plains Road continues to evolve, change and welcome new businesses and residents,” says Andrea Dodd, Executive Director, Aldershot Village BIA. “We are thrilled to be a part of this process that will only bring more success to our current business community and welcome more to the area in the future. Explore and experience Plains Road, get to know our business community and shop Aldershot.” 

Be sure to kickstart the holiday season at the Aldershot tree lighting event in November.
