Please join us in Avondale Saturday May 19th for the next Jax Cash Mob. Mojo #4 is the meetup spot where at 1pm the cash mob site will be unveiled. Afterwards, post-mob drinks and socializing will be held at Mojo #4 at 2:30pm. The Shoppes of Avondale is comprised of over 60 locally-owned and operated small businesses. This is ground zero of the shop local movement.
This is the second installment of Jax Cash Mob after our first event was successfully held downtown April 7th. That event spurred same day sales increases of 38% and 29% respectively of two local businesses, in ONE hour's time. The May 19th event looks to double both of these metrics.
Please join me and invite a friend to come along with you. If you can't make it, please spread the word.
Thank you as always for your support!
What is a cash mob?
A cash mob is a group of people who assemble at a local business and all buy items from that business. The purpose of these mobs is to support both the local businesses and the overall community. Think of the cash mob as a "shop local" flash mob created to spur local economic stimulus! The ten dollars demonstrates your personal commitment and effort to support a local independent retailer while having fun doing it as a part of a larger group. Cash mobs also have a social and community-building component as the interaction between community-minded individuals that meet at these events has a multiplier effect that breeds new projects and contacts.
How do I participate?
Here are the rules:
1. Show up at Mojo #4 at 1pm. Mojo #4 is located at 3572 St Johns Ave.
2. Spend $10-$20 at a local store (we'll reveal the store at 1pm)
3. Meet three new people
Why cash mob?
When we buy local, from local businesspeople, wealth is both created and retained in the community. Think of what an impact we can all have on our community by simply choosing to shop local. We each do a little. We all do a lot.
