First Cash Mob to be next Monday

| October 5, 2012

COSHOCTON – The Coshocton County Chamber of Commerce announces their upcoming Coshocton Cash Mob. The very first Cash Mob will be Monday, Oct. 8, at The Canal Cargo in Roscoe Village. The Cash Mob will meet at 5:15 p.m. outside the store. Afterwards, they will go to The Warehouse for a ‘mob-tail’ and vote on the next chamber retail business to mob.

According to Amy Stockdale, Executive Director of the Coshocton County Chamber of Commerce, cash mobs encourage members of a community to make a change and help support a local business. Mobbers typically spend 10-20 dollars at the business being mobbed, which creates an immediate economic stimulus. The term ‘cash mob’ comes from the same concept of a ‘flash mob’. Just as flash mobs call together a group of people to meet for a short period of time, so do cash mobs. A cash mob is a new trend in which people use social media to plan organized events, providing a way to join together and support local businesses.

“Not only are cash mobs helping local businesses achieve financial success, they are creating everlasting customers and uniting people of the community,” said Stockdale. “Our local businesses are so important to our community and this is an easy way to get involved to shop locally. Anyone is invited to attend by showing up at the Canal Cargo on Monday at 5:15 p.m. We encourage everyone to participate in this grass root event.”
