The purpose of “Cash Mobs” is to help promote and coordinate spending at local businesses and merchants.
Take the flash-mob phenomenon, give it a business boosters spin, and you have a “cash mob” — in which civic-minded citizens use social media to organize visits to small, local businesses with the purpose of boosting their business.
Join us if you believe in helping local small businesses thrive in our community.
We arrange to meet once a month at a predetermined day and time. When we meet, we announce what business is the target this month. We then proceed to go and mob the business – spending $20.00+ at that merchant.
Afterwards, we go to a local restaurant for a drink, dessert and celebration.
Through social media (twitter, facebook, pinterest, etc) and the Meetup forum, we get the word out to other citizens where and when we’re meeting. The goal is to grow the group so we can “mob” a business once a month to support our community.
