A Resource For Planning A Local Cash Mob

 

So, What's A CASH MOB....

Just in case you still haven't heard about this recent phenomena that's called "Cash Mob" ...here's the scoop. It's been a long time since something this simple and yet so powerful has been able to explode in neighborhoods all across the land. It is reviving the community spirit of yester-year and bringing people together in a way that only our grandparents can remember.

The concept is simple...Organizers select a Local Independent Business that has usually been around so long that they have been somewhat forgotten, because of all the new Big Box Stores and Shopping Malls springing up everywhere. Then by using the power of Social Media ...mostly Facebook & Twitter, a wave of awareness is created with the end result being a scheduled visit to this business by all interested members of that community.

From hardware stores to restaurants, people show up with $20 (give or take a few bucks) and show their support with a purchase. These events usually bring together old friends and neighborhood acquaintances who often share stories about the business they are gathered at. Not only is the CASH MOB rekindling that old fashioned support of a Local Business, but it makes for a GOOD DAY (Dollars in the Cash Register) at the participating merchant.
