POMEROY —The (Cash) Mob will be making its return to town next week, with the goal of helping to support local business.
Want proof that if everyone does a little, we can do a lot? Come out Tuesday, Aug. 8 from 4-6 p.m. to Hartwell House for the next local Cash Mob. This is part of the Meigs County Chamber of Commerce’s Love Meigs, Shop Local Campaign.
“A Cash Mob is based on a flash mob — people show up at a designated place and time, except they are not expected to sing and dance. Instead, people are encouraged to spend at least $10 at the store. If even half the community comes out and spends a little bit of money, it can have a huge impact on the business. The Cash Mob also promises to be a great time to socialize,” stated a news release announcing the event.
“We are looking forward to hosting the event. It will give people a chance to visit our store and see what we have to offer. It is also a great opportunity to meet with people in the area,” Bobbi Karr, owner of Hartwell House.
There will be several exclusive Cash Mob deals that will only be available during the event (4-6 p.m.) as well as drawings for the “mobbers.”
“Cash Mobs are great events. They showcase a business and demonstrate that every little bit helps. Each purchase impacts our local economy with the money flowing back into our local communities,” stated John Hoback, Chamber President.
Small businesses are essential to the community and it is important to support them year round. The Cash Mob is a fun event that will showcase a different store each time.
Hartwell House sells a variety of items including Primitives by Kathy, Candleberry, Uno de 50, Waxing Poetic, Fenton beads, Lenny & Eva, beach decor, primitive and Americana decor, and a dozen more jewelry lines.
