A new phenomenon called “cash mobs” is spreading across the country. A cash mob is an effort to help support local businesses. It’s basically a group of people showing up and pledging to spend $20 in a designated local shop. It’s an infusion of cash into the cash mob’s community that stays in the community.
It’s a cool, viral attempt to highlight some of the great stores and products in local communities and help out local economies. Loveland and Fort Collins both have monthly cash mob events and there is one in Windsor tomorrow afternoon.
