I encourage all residents to take advantage of the sale and to support our Broadway merchants.”
The sidewalk sale is open to any business on Broadway that would like to put out information, have free activities, or sell merchandise at low prices, either outside or inside the stores. Broadway businesses interested in participating in the sidewalk sale should call the Bayonne Urban Enterprise Zone/Special Improvement District (UEZ/SID) at 201-858-6357.

Mayor Davis said, “The City of Bayonne encourages all retailers and business owners to set up tables or displays outside their establishments during the sale, so that new residents and customers will learn what you have to offer.”
