From the Pleasanton Downtown Association:
It’s time for another Cash Mob!
The Pleasanton Downtown Association (PDA) is excited to announce that Cash Mobs will now be held on the 3rd Wednesday of the month. The start time and meeting location will remain the same, but the shopping location will be new each month. Plus, all Cash Mob participants will be entered to win a $25 downtown gift card, which is accepted at more than 100 downtown businesses! The next Cash Mob will be held on Wednesday, October 17 at 6 p.m.
Cash Mobs are a new movement aimed at supporting local businesses and strengthening communities. A Cash Mob is like a Flash Mob, but instead of singing, dancing or rioting, Cash Mobbers join together and each spend $20 (or more!) at a local business. Cash Mobs are taking place in cities throughout the country and are a great way to provide economic stimulus to our downtown businesses while engaging the community and helping locals get to know our downtown even better.
“Our Cash Mob aims to engage participants with the ‘buy local’ message and ensure they have a great time doing it. We’re informing people about how their $20 purchase goes a long way to improve the quality of life in downtown,” said Laura Olson, Executive Director of the PDA. “The Cash Mob will give us all an opportunity to have a measurable impact on a business in our downtown.”
Anyone interested in participating in the Cash Mob should meet PDA staff members in front of the Museum on Main (603 Main Street) at 6 p.m. on the third Wednesday of the month. The PDA will then announce the business selected by random draw for the Cash Mob. All participants will walk to the business together and have fun shopping and getting to know that business! If you cannot make it to the Museum please check the PDA’s Facebook page for the selected business & address information.
The rules of the PDA’s Cash Mob are simple…
1. Spend $20 (or more!) at the selected business
2. Get to know your other Cash Mobbers
3. Have fun!
