Ca$h Mob Bradford Off to Great Start


Ca$h Mob Bradford made it's first "hit" on Saturday at Timeless Treasures on Chestnut Street. 28 mobsters – including 26 adults and 2 children - met at the Bradford Area Chamber of Commerce office, where Timeless Treasures was announced as the first Ca$h Mob Bradford target, and then the group headed to the Chestnut Street store to do their shopping.

The new Ca$h Mob Bradford program is organized by the Bradford Area Chamber of Commerce as a way to stimulate the economy and support locally owned businesses. The idea was put into action after a local resident shared information about the Grove City Area Chamber of Commerce’s successful cash mob program with Bradford Area Chamber of Commerce staff. Ca$h Mob Bradford will target a different BACC member business each month, with mobsters each spending $20 or more in cash at the target--which is not announced until the day of the event.

On Saturday, the Ca$h Mob Bradford participants generated $701.13 in sales for Timeless Treasures, a lovely shop with an incredible variety of merchandise tucked into every nook and cranny of the store. Timeless Treasures’ creatively-displayed inventory includes decorative housewares, children’s clothes, toys, candles, kitchenware, specialty food items, gifts, and more. One lucky mobster was also randomly chosen to receive a $25 Bradford Gift Certificate.

BACC’s next Ca$h Mob Bradford will be held on Saturday, September 20th at 11am. Those interested in joining the mob should bring at least $20 cash to spend at a locally owned business and meet at Veterans’ Square on Main Street. If the cash mob has at least 25 participants (those spending $20 each), then a $25 Bradford Gift Certificate will be awarded to one of the participants. Anyone interested in being added to the Ca$h Mob email reminder list should contact kara.kennedy@bradfordchamber.com. Join the mob – it’s a fun way to support local businesses and put “Shop Local” into action!
