About This Cash Mob:

West Concord 5&10 is set to get cash mobbed on Saturday, March 2, 2013. A cash mob is a grassroots, community-let movement to support local businesses. With $20 in hand, member of a community come together to shop in a locally owned establishment to support the area economy. Locally owned businesses build strong communities by sustaining vibrant town centers, and linking neighbors in a web of economic and social relationships. Did you know that small local businesses are the largest employers nationally and in our communities provide the most jobs to residents. For every $100 spent at locally owned businesses, $68 stays in the local economy compared to only $43 if spent at a national chain, according to a Civic Economics study on Grand Rapids, Mich. in 2008. Small businesses add to the fabric of and make our communities unique

The cash mob will be meeting at 106 Commonwealth Ave, West Concord, MA.
