Detroit checking in…
I’m a month late with this, but it’s a great piece about a mob in Detroit! – Andrew
by Arthur Mullen
On Saturday March 3rd, Tis County was the focus of Mount Clemens first Cash Mob. They saw an over 600% increase in transactions from the previous weekend, over doubling of the recommended purchase of $10 in goods, and over 135 visitors.
Shoppers also came in the day before and the days following the Cash Mob to show their support for Tis Country too. One Cash Mobber came all the way from Marine City, MI, over 25 miles away!
The After Mob at Detroit Pub saw a doubling their Saturday afternoon sales! A goal for the After Mob was to assist mobbers in getting to know other shoptivists while supporting a second independent business.
The first Cash Mobs sprung up in Buffalo and Cleveland around the same time last fall. The organizer’s intent was to provide a financial and morale boost to a local business owner while giving the Mobbers the opportunity to meet new people during the events.
Periodic future Cash Mobs will be held in the coming months. Details will be posted on the Mount Clemens DDA website, on its www.facebook.com/DowntownMountClemens page, and in its www.twitter.com/MountClemensDDA feed.
For more information regarding the Mount Clemens Cash Mob or any other activities, please call Arthur Mullen, DDA Director at (586) 469-4168.
