Have you ever attended a cash mob? I have. It’s an incredible experience. A mob of customers descends on an unsuspecting shop owner, each with a commitment to spend a minimum amount of cash. For the shop owner, it means so much: an unexpected influx of cash, a feeling of belonging in a community, and the added benefit of word of mouth business that will likely continue long past cash mob day. I can tell you first-hand – being a part of this type of movement is very special. Now’s your chance to get involved! Downtown Dartmouth is planning a cash mob for Saturday, September 1st at Fisher’s Stationary on Portland Street, Dartmouth.
Here are the deets, straight from Downtown Dartmouth Business Commission.
“Fisher’s Stationary has been on Portland Street in downtown Dartmouth for over 50 years, and many people remember it as the place they got their school supplies. Mrs. Fisher has stayed in business and continued to believe in Downtown Dartmouth. This is a great way for the community to thank her.” said Tim Rissesco, Executive Director of the Downtown Dartmouth Business Commission.
Everyone interested in participated is asked to meet at the Alderney Farmer’s Market at 10:45 am and to bring $10.00 to spend. The participants will leave Alderney Market and arrive at Fisher’s Stationary at 11:00 am.
Downtown Dartmouth will have prizes and give aways for everyone that participates in the Cash Mob and invites everyone to enjoy lunch in downtown Dartmouth and explore the other shops and services.
