You’ve probably heard of Cash Mob happening in cities around the world by now. We’re pleased to report that a Cash Mob movement has been running locally helping struggling Chicago businesses stay afloat.
If you haven’t heard of Cash Mob, it’s a lot like Flash Mob, but instead of random people coming together at a certain time and place to break into a dance, they break open their piggy banks and wallets and spend at least $20 at a family owned struggling small business. Call it a reverse Groupon if you will.
It is quite a sight to see when the store is having a typical slow day, and suddenly people start pouring through the doors, waiting in line and buying up useful items. That’s what happened at Andersonville Galleria last month.
March 24th is National Cash Mob day, so expect a big event. Tune in and see where the Cash Mob Chicago will hit on that day.
Follow the movement and help local shops along the way.
