Solon's first cash mob at Solon Hardware went so well the Solon Chamber of Commerce is planning a second event in October.
The next cash mob is scheduled at 5 p.m. on Oct. 3. The business that will be mobbed will be a surprise, and will be announced the day of the event, said Chamber Chairman Jim Kelvington.
The announcement will be made at noon on Oct. 3 on the chamber website.
A cash mob is an event to encourage people to shop local businesses by having a crowd descend on a specific business and have each person spend at least $20. They are usually organized through social media and, of course, good old fashioned word of mouth.
We'll have more information on the cash mob as it gets closer!
