Good Question. There is only a couple of businesses that are not franchises, which is where the cash mob usually targets.

Got the idea from Fox 8?

Hi Jack: I hope to talk to the organizers before the event and get more details. Hi Mary: Not sure where the Chamber got the idea, but I know that cash mobs are increasingly popular in Cleveland and around the country.

Suzi, the business is aware. The idea came from a member of the SMAC committee ( social media and connections ).
