Sure sign of a new school year: Oxford businesses phase out summer break hours

Summer hours are coming to a close for some Oxford businesses.

During the Miami University school year, about two-thirds of Oxford’s population is made up of Miami students and professors. This leads to a massive drop in population when school ends for summer break. Some businesses were closed completely for the summer season, while others shortened their hours due to the smaller customer base.

Throughout August, businesses will be switching back to their normal hours. Here is a partial list of when places along High Street in uptown Oxford will be returning to their regular hours between now and the start of Miami’s school year on Aug. 27.
