(MENA) After having storms or rain for the last three monthly Cash Mobs, Judy Thompson, Downtown Liaison, says it’s time to have fun in the sun. Therefore, the theme for the June Mob is beach party fun. The event will be held at American Artisans on Saturday, June 8, 10 AM. There will be complimentary refreshments, door prizes, games and other fun prior to the name of the shop to be ‘mobbed’ being drawn.
The Cash Mob is an on-going project of the Mena Downtown Partners since October, 2017, to promote its Buy Local campaign and provide an opportunity for fun and socializing.
A Cash Mob is a community effort that joins people together to support local businesses. In this effort, the Cash Mob converges on a participating downtown shop that is a member of the Downtown Partners. Cash Mobs bring an immediate economic impact to a locally-owned business with long-term positive results.
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.
Cash Mobs continue to be more 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 MDP member businesses, door prizes and special incentives are given to Mob’sters. Rules are 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. Just show up and sign in at the door.
This is a great opportunity to meet new people and hang out with old friends. Everyone is invited.
