Who We Are

Pinehurst Business Partners (PBP) is a member-based association focused on serving businesses in and around the Village of Pinehurst, North Carolina. We strive to support our members by offering subsidized group advertising, email and social media marketing, networking opportunities, and sponsored events. Our tagline, “It Takes a Village”, sums up our commitment to team work and the mutual respect we show each other.

Sponsored Events:

BAH: Business After Hours happens the 4th Monday of most months. This provides our members the opportunity to network in a social setting, catch up on the latest PBP news, and talk with Village of Pinehurst representatives who are usually in attendance.

Late till 8 happens the 4th Thursday of each month all Summer long. Participating businesses stay open till 8 offering customers additional time to explore, shop, and sip (complementary wine provided) their way through the Village of Pinehurst.

Holly Arts & Craft’s Festival held in mid-October combines the talents of over 200 hand-crafters in a variety of genres – from woodworking to glass, stitched art to lawn ornaments, hand-crafted jewelry to metal sculpture. Downtown shops offer sales and specials with restaurants and food trucks providing fuel for this unique shopping experience.

A Village Christmas held in early December is a Holiday Open House for participating businesses who stay open late offering exclusive sales, giveaways, and treats. Visitors love strolling through the village for this festive annual event.
