A friendly mob in search of good deals

Tuesday, May 7, 2013 — A mob is going to break out in Albemarle at 5 p.m. Thursday.

A Cash Mob that is.

The mob will meet at Courthouse Square with money in hand.  

This is a nationwide movement where the concept is simple: with $20 in hand, members of a community come together to shop in a locally-owned establishment to support their favorite local business and support the area economy.  

The target business will be revealed at the event, although there are already hints on Facebook, Twitter and downtown.   

This event is sponsored by the Albemarle Downtown Business Association.
