CASID Press Release

Over 11,000 Tote Bags Being Distributed Along Central Avenue Beginning Small Business Saturday (November 30th)

Local Businesses Sponsor nearly 13,000 Tote Bag Giveaway

Jersey City, NJ – Starting on Small Business Saturday, November 30th, over 11,000 tote bags will be distributed to Jersey City shoppers along Central Avenue thanks to the efforts of forty-eight (48) local sponsors. The bags come in three colors: blue, green, and yellow.

Working together through the Central Avenue Special Improvement District program, area businesses continue the annual tradition of distributing “Shop Local, Shop Central Avenue/ Heights” tote bags to some of their favorite customers near the holidays. Since this program started in 2015, the CASID has placed a combined 30,000 reusable tote bags on the street to change the bagging habits of local shoppers.

“We are happy to work together and do our part for Jersey City,” said Sanford Fishman, CASID President and pharmacist at Bond Drugs. “Jersey City’s ban on disposable plastic bags went into effect earlier this year and some customers are still adjusting to the idea of having to bring their own bags. These stylish Central Avenue/ Heights tote bags are quite popular as many shoppers look forward to new bags each year.”

Many participating businesses will hand out the tote bags starting on Small Business Saturday and through December while supplies last. A list of participating businesses is available on CASID’s website (JCHeights.com). Anyone who would like a reusable bag should request one during his or her next visit to the shopping district (terms and conditions apply, minimum purchase of $10 at select locations).

Shoppers will also be treated to Central Avenue’s 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 Thanksgiving (Nov. 29th) and New Year’s Day (Jan. 1st). Shoppers can also save half the sales tax on retail purchases at registered UEZ businesses.
