Central Avenue's Reusable Tote Bags Are Back for 2017

Local Businesses Sponsor 2,000 Tote Bag Giveaway

Jersey City, NJ – The Central Avenue S.I.D. Management Corporation is pleased to announce that thirty-six of our local businesses have again sponsored the distribution of 2,000 reusable tote bags which are now being spread to customers through the holidays. Central Avenue businesses have distributed 6,000 reusable tote bags during the last three holiday seasons combined.

“Local Jersey City businesses are doing their part to reduce the dependence on plastic bags,” said Sanford Fishman, CASID President and pharmacist at Bond Drugs. “We want our city to be more sustainable and help reduce the amount of litter that is often seen floating around the City. This is also serves as a reminder that shopping local is the gift that keeps on giving,”

Many participating businesses will hand out the tote bags on Small Business Saturday which falls on November 25th. This year’s stylish Central Avenue/ The Heights tote bags come in two colors: green and yellow. Sponsors are listed by business name, address, and telephone number on the bags. A list of sponsors is available on CASID’s website – JCHeights.com. Anyone who would like a reusable bag should request one during his or her next Central Avenue visit. The bags will be given away while supplies last.

Shoppers and visitors will also be treated to our annual holiday decorations which include over 130 lighting pieces and forty festive banners spread throughout the district. The City of Jersey City has announced free two-hour parking in municipal lots between Black Friday (Nov. 24th) and New Year’s Day (Jan. 1st). Shoppers will save half the sales tax on retail purchases at registered UEZ businesses. Additionally, the CASID as joined the citywide effort to encourage “Shop Jersey City, Buy Local.” Many local businesses are proudly displaying a “Shop Jersey City” decal on their front doors in support.
