Cash Mob Scheduled for November 19th

WOONSOCKET, RI – November 19th is the date for the next Cash Mob that will swarm a retail store and a restaurant after meeting in the Market Square Municipal Parking Lot in Woonsocket. (South Main Street across from River Falls Restaurant)

The Northern Rhode Island Chamber of Commerce and Blackstone Valley Independent Business Alliance are organizing the event and will identify the mystery stores at 6:15 p.m.  Cash mobs are large groups of consumers that agree to spend cash on items of their own choosing at designated venues. People do not have to register for the event and all are invited to participate.

“Participating in a cash mob is a great way to spend an evening, and our shoppers are pleasantly surprised at how a small amount of money can go a long way towards helping local merchants,” said John C. Gregory, president and chief executive officer of the Chamber.

“This is a great way to do our part to help stimulate the local economy.” Jeanne Budnick, President of the Alliance echoed these sentiments and added, “It’s a lot of fun too.”

Business owners that want to be a cash mob destination can contact the Chamber at (401) 334-1000 or Budnick at Pepin Lumber in Woonsocket at (401) 769-8128.
