Cash Mob returns Thursday

Staff Report -

MIDDLEPORT — The mob will be making an appearance in Middleport on Thursday — the Cash Mob, to be exact.

After hosting its first Cash Mob event in August at Front Paige Outfitters, the Meigs County Chamber of Commerce is taking its second Cash Mob event to King’s Ace Hardware in Middleport.

The Cash Mob event will be held from 4-6:30 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 10.

A cash mob is a group of people who assemble at a local business to make purchases. According to the Chamber, “The purpose of these mobs is to support both the local businesses and the overall community. They also serve a secondary purpose in providing social opportunities. They are a form of a flash mob, and are inspired by them.”

“It is a great opportunity to preview a business’ selection while enjoying a party-like atmosphere shopping,” stated the email announcing the event.

Mobbers are encouraged to spend at least $10 at the business.

“If even half the community comes out and spends a little bit of money, it can have a huge impact on the business. Other than that, we hope everyone has fun,” stated the release.

King’s will have special $10 deals, as well as other promotions throughout the evening.
