#ShopSmall This Holiday Season!

Shop Central Avenue, Jersey City Heights

Happy Holidays! With over 240 storefronts, the Central Avenue shopping district is here to serve you with a wide variety of shopping, dining, and services. Pay Only 3.5% Sales Tax at Participating UEZ registered businesses. Also, enjoy TWO HOURS FREE METER PARKING IN MUNICIPAL LOTS along Central Avenue from December 1st through January 2, 2015.

Shop this holiday season with a purpose. For every $100 you spend at locally owned businesses, $73 remains in the community. Those dollars help fund local wages, local taxes and other locally owned businesses, as well as donations to local non-profits. This compares to only $43 remaining in the community when you spend $100 at a non-locally owned business. Additionally, small businesses simply work harder to earn your business through product knowledge and personal customer service. Local businesses value, respect and appreciate your patronage. You can find anything you need locally and your local businesses give back more to the community.

Winter/ Snow Removal Reminder to Bizs

The winter is now upon us and everyone knows that a snow free shopping district is a happy shopping district. The City of Jersey City is reminding every owner, occupant or person having charge of a commercial building or vacant lot to clear snow from the sidewalks surrounding their property to allow the passage of pedestrians and strollers. Snow must be removed within 4 hours after snowfall. If the snow has fallen during the night, snow must be removed within 8 hours after sunrise. Please be reminded that it is illegal to dump snow in the street. All snow and ice removed from the sidewalk shall be banked and piled within three feet inside the curb. Jersey City code inspectors will be enforcing these ordinances after each snowfall:
