Handcrafted Bicycle to be raffled off

 Posted for Candler Park Market

 For the past several years, New Belgium Brewery has generously donated one of their hand crafted  bicycles for us to display in the Market.  New Belgium leaves the fate of the bicycle to the discretion  of each store once it goes off display. 

We have always held a raffle for the bicycle with proceeds from ticket sales donated to the CPNO and LCN.  The bicycle will be displayed from now until our customer appreciation on July 12th when we will draw the winning ticket during our customer appreciation.  Each ticket is $2, and proceeds from ticket purchases are equally donated to CPNO and LCN.

Kwanza Hall and 'Keep It INtown' promote CP shopping

Nov 21 2013

Check out this "Keep It INtown" promotion that our soon-to-be City Councilman Kwanza Hall's office and Atlanta INtown organized at several Candler Park businesses.



Due to redistricting, we become Hall's constituents when the new City Council's sworn in in January. But he's already the go-to guy for Candler Parkers on legislation, constituent service and — in this case — community support. Thanks, Kwanza!
