(MENA) With school beginning soon, some minds turn to books. Judy Thompson, Downtown Business Liaison, says there will be plenty of books around when Books & Stuf hosts the Cash Mob on August 10 at 10 AM. For anyone not familiar with the Mob: This has been a project of the Mena Downtown Partners since October, 2017, to promote its “Buy Local” efforts.
The Mob meets the second Saturday of each month at 10:00 AM at a predetermined place for morning refreshments. All participating MDP retailers who have not yet been selected on this round will have their business names placed in a container. One of the Mob’sters will draw the name and then the Mob will proceed to the selected business for a fun shopping experience.
As usual, there will be complimentary refreshments, door prizes and lots of fun.
Cash Mobs continue to be popular throughout the country and are an entertaining way to encourage shoppers into businesses where they not only normally shop but also to stores that they are not familiar with. The monthly Mobs provide an opportunity to shop at various businesses.
Through the Mena Downtown Partners member businesses, door prizes and special incentives are given to Mob’sters. Rules to participate are very simple… 1) Commit to spend at least $20 at each Cash Mob and 2) Have fun. Thompson advises that one does not have to be pre-registered as a Mob member and encourages individuals and groups of friends to become a part of this activity. Just show up and sign in at the door. Help the local economy and indulge in that all-American pastime of….shopping! This is a great opportunity to meet new people and hang out with old friends. Books & Stuf is located on the corner of Mena and Sherwood in the George Davis State Farm Building.
