Ca$h Mob to Strike Again

Everyone is invited to join Ca$h Mob Bradford as it makes its next “hit” this Saturday, September 20th at 11am. Those interested in participating should bring at least $20 cash to spend and meet at Veterans’ Square, where the target business will be announced.

The 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.

“We had a great turnout and a great time at the first Ca$h Mob Bradford event in August,” said Bradford Area Chamber of Commerce Event Coordinator Kara Kennedy. “We are hoping for at least 25 mobsters to join us again this Saturday.” If the cash mob has at least 25 participants, then a $25 Bradford Gift Certificate will be awarded to one of the participants.

Anyone interested in being added to the email reminder list for upcoming Ca$h Mob Bradford events should contact kara.kennedy@bradfordchamber.com. “Several new individuals have contacted us this month to let us know they want to join in, but there’s no limit to how big this could grow – the more, the merrier!” said Kennedy. “We have more than a year’s worth of target businesses who have already expressed interest as well. Any Chamber member business can be a target and we look forward to working our way through the list, giving the community yet another way to actively show their support for locally owned businesses.” Bring your friends and family – and your cash – and join the mob. It’s a fun way to put “Shop Local” into action!
