December 12, 11:00 a.m. Cash mobbers receive 10% off their purchase! Location revealed the morning of the event! Check our Facebook page for hints!
Noun: A gathering of shoppers organized through social media who agree to patronize a local business at a particular time and spend up to $20 apiece. The location is kept a secret until the last minute, although clues are given out in advance.
At the mob there are three rules:
1) Spend up to $20
2) Meet people you did not know before
3) HAVE FUN!
WHERE ARE WE MOBBING?
The "victim" will be revealed the morning of the Mob (December 12) via the Campbell County Chamber's Facebook and Twitter (@CCCCWyo) sites. See you December 12!
So you've joined the Cash Mob! Now what happens?
The day of, you'll get fairly regular updates via Facebook and Twitter hyping people up and sharing information.
Try to get to the meeting spot as close to the scheduled time as possible. Once we reach between 10-15 mobsters (which usually occurs after about 15 minutes), we head to the chosen mystery business! The morning of the mob start time, the destination will be leaked for those who can't make it to the meeting spot on time.
As we get closer to mobbing time, many of the updates will come through Twitter.
Once the mob begins, you can do whatever you want, but mainly, you should:
- support the chosen local business,
- introduce yourself to the fellow mobsters, and, if you can,
- visit some neighboring small businesses as well!
