The first Solon Cash Mob is heading to Solon Hardware at 5 p.m.
The store is located at 6310 Melbury Avenue, near the intersection with Station Street.
The mob is meeting at 5 p.m. at nearby Solon Square Shopping Center. Then the crowd will make its way to Solon Hardware.
After, the mob is heading to for food and drinks. Everyone is welcome!
It's easy to participate: Just bring $20 to purchase items from the hardware store. And tell your friends to come along too.
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.
Solon's cash mob was devised by the 's social media and connections committee. Read a letter from Chamber Chairman Jim Kelvington about why they are organizing the Cash Mob.
