shop local 300MUHLENBERG COUNTY, KY (1/14/13) – The Greater Muhlenberg Chamber of Commerce (GMCC) seems pleased to announce that a “mob” is coming to Muhlenberg County.
 
Not a bad “mob,” but a “Cash Mob!” This new program is being introduced by the Chamber Ambassadors in hopes of recognizing local businesses and encouraging residents and chamber members alike to “shop local.”
 
So, what is a “Cash Mob” and how does it work? The Cash Mob is a new trend that has ignited a passionate crowd throughout the country to fuel the local economy. The concept is to bring a group of people together for one day to support a local, independently owned business. Every “mobber” is encouraged to visit the selected business with “cash” in hand and to purchase at least one item from that business. Mobbers are encouraged to spend a little or a lot. The goal is simply to make an impact on that business.
 
The GMCC will be hosting its Cash Mob events on the 20th of each month. In the month of January the 20th falls on a weekend, so this month’s mob will be on Friday, January 18th. Every month a business will randomly be selected as the special “Cash Mob” location. The location will be kept a secret until the day of the event when it will be announced via Chamber email and the Chamber Facebook page. You will also be able to get the news via the Greenville and Central City tourism Facebook pages. Then chamber members and the general public will be encouraged to “mob” the business throughout the day as the cash mob will take place during regular business hours for each business selected. The “Cash Mob” is open to everyone within the community and the public is encouraged to participate. The chamber will also be hosting a special gift certificate drawing for cash mob participants. Simply show up for the cash mob and upon completing your purchase put your name in the bucket to win a $25 Chamber Gift Certificate that is redeemable at over 50 different local businesses!
 
“We hope to raise awareness of all the great businesses right here in Muhlenberg County and make a positive impact on these businesses with our pocketbooks” said Chamber Ambassador Beth Newman. This will also be a great networking opportunity, a chance to get to know other fellow “cash mobbers” who share a passion for shopping local.
 
So, mark your calendars for Friday, January 18th and be prepared to become part of the “mob!” The “Cash Mob” that is and make a positive impact on your local community! Watch your email and check your Facebook to see the location of the first Muhlenberg County “Mob.” If you have any questions or comments regarding the upcoming “Cash Mob” please contact Dorothy Walker at the Greater Muhlenberg Chamber of Commerce at 270-754-2360 or 270-338-5422.
