With the bitterly cold weather we have been having, I am sure everyone has cabin fever or even a bad case of the winter blahs. That can all be cured by coming to the Main Street Cash Mob Day! Don’t have all your Valentine shopping done yet? Come to the Main Street Cash Mob Day!

What is a Cash Mob? The cash mobbers will meet at the Main Street office, located at 1126 West Main Street, at 4:30 p.m. for cookies and light refreshments. At 4:45 p.m. we will draw a name from our fish bowl of merchants who want to be mobbed. Then at 5 p.m., we show up at the merchant, unannounced, and have fun shopping!

If you have not signed up yet to be a Main Street Cash Mobber, join us anyway on Thursday, February 13 at 4:30 p.m. and get signed up. Bring a friend or two! You will receive a free Cash Mob t-shirt once you are signed up. There are only three rules to be a Main Street Cash Mobber:
1) Wear your official Cash Mob t-shirt.
2) Plan to spend at least $20.00 at the business being mobbed and
3) Most importantly! laugh, smile, meet 3 new people and have FUN shopping local.

And MEN! This is not just for the ladies. It is a great time to shop for your sweetheart.

For more information, please call the Director, Mary Risley at 918-371-5530.
