Don’t Have a Blue Christmas: Have Fun at the December Cash Mob

Judy Thompson, Cash Mob coordinator for Mena Downtown Partners, says that
the December Cash Mob will be like the song by Elvis: There’ll be a blue
Christmas without you. She advises the Cash Mob is a great time for fun and
shopping…the more, the merrier! The Christmas Mob will be hosted on December
8 th by Ouachita Coffee, 821 Mena Street. The group will meet at 10 AM for
refreshments, door prizes and lots of fun before drawing the name of the shop to be
mobbed.
The Cash Mob is an effort of the Mena Downtown Partners and meets the second
Saturday of each month, frequently with some type of fun theme. Advance
registration for the Cash Mob is not required—just show up and fill out a brief
form with contact information. There is always a designated gathering place that is
announced prior to the mob date. Participants gather and complimentary
refreshments are served with door prizes and fun. Afterwards, a business name is
drawn. The group then converges on that particular Downtown Partners’ member
with laughter, yelling and balloons to do some shopping. Rules are very simple: A
commitment to spend $20 or more at the selected shop is required. The only other
requirement is to have fun and enjoy meeting new people.
The two main goals of the Cash Mob are to provide an opportunity for meeting
new people in a fun atmosphere and to help the Partners’ Buy Local effort. Make
new friends; visit with old friends and enjoy the favorite pastime of shopping!
Paraphrasing Elvis’ Blue Christmas: We’ll have a blue Christmas without you.
We’ll be so blue just thinking about you. We won’t laugh, we’ll just sob….if you
don’t make it to our December Mob!
