  • Trenton-Ewing, NJ (1888PressRelease) August 12, 2010 - Levin Management Corporation, Capitol Plaza's exclusive leasing and managing agent, noted that many additional stores at the property will offer merchandise discounts during the one-day event, and tenant Cricket Wireless will host a radio remote with personalities from radio station WRDW from 2 to 4 pm.

    "Thanks to the generosity of local residents, who continue to donate their used bikes for The Bike Exchange's program, our tenant has already raised more than $54,000 for the Boys and Girls Club this year," said Matthew Harding, president and chief operating officer of Levin Management. "We hope area shoppers will come out during the sidewalk sale to help support this worthy cause and raise even more money to fund important programs for the children in Mercer County."

    The reconditioned bike sale comes on the heels of a highly successful bike drive hosted by The Bike Exchange at Capitol Plaza, during which area residents donated used bicycles. Bike Exchange volunteers, many of whom are from the Princeton Free Wheelers bicycle club, then repair the bikes, which are sold at discounted rates. All types of bicycles, including children's bikes, road bikes and mountain bikes are accepted, refurbished and resold. In addition to helping the Boys and Girls Club, the mission of The Bike Exchange is to help low-income families and their children purchase bicycles at affordable prices.

    The Bike Exchange already has sold 1,445 bicycles since March, most of them to low-income families. Proceeds are benefiting the Boys and Girls Club's after-school, summer camp and academic enrichment programs that serve more than 2,000 children and teens.

    "Capitol Plaza is committed to fully supporting the Bike Exchange's efforts to serve area youngsters, and we hope to see another $54,000 raised," noted Harding.

    The Bike Exchange also recently launched a bicycle consignment program for unused bikes in good condition with a market value of $200 or more. In addition, The Bike Exchange will sell bicycles to Princeton University students on campus this fall. All net proceeds will help the Boys and Girls Club.
