Cash Mob at Old Town Farmer’s Market
Local First Arizona (LFA) is collaborating with the City of Cottonwood and the Old Town Farmers Market to bring Cottonwood it’s first ever cash mob from 5 to 6 p.m. in Old Town Historic District, 791 N. Main St. The cash mob is a fairly recent phenomenon, having grown from the desire to show support for small, independent businesses. The idea is simple: gather a large group of people to descend on a business in a short time span, and have each person spend $20 (or whatever you have) in cash at that business.
Local First Arizona is planning a series of cash mobs in preparation of their annual summer event, Independents Week, July 1-7.
