The first of the Cash Mobs began on Oct. 2, and featured community members descending on a local business with each shopper spending at least $20 while in the store.
“It’s a single day boost for a small, independent business,” said LACC Executive Director Shelbie Glover. “Our goal is to bring the community together to support these great local businesses and hopefully create new customers in the process.
“We are always looking for ways to support local businesses. The cash mob is a new and creative way to do that,” said Glover. “We hope you will come out and shop at these local merchants.”
Cash mobs have helped many around the nation to continue serving and enriching their communities.
Other local businesses benefit as well when cash mobs head out for food, drinks and good times after a successful shopping experience.
Participating merchants in the Holiday Cash Mob include Identity Med Spa and Salon, 2808 S. Main; LaBella Salon, 1424 S. Main; Lindale Floral Shop, 110 W. South St.; Pinkie Pie’s Boutique, 304 S. Main St. and Zacki’s Unique Boutique, 1420 S. Main St.
Each store will have in store specials, food and drinks and door prizes.
