Cash Mob Coming To Wellsville
You're invited to attend a Cash Mob!!!
So what's a Cash Mob you say... It's a new trend designed to help small, independently owned businesses. Inspired by the Flash Mobs of recent years, Cash Mobs was started in either Cleveland or Buffalo, depending on who you listen to. It's an event that is still evolving and the official rule book is yet to be written. It is not meant to be “a political or social organization. It is not meant to be an answer to the economic crisis”. It's more of neighbor helping neighbor and a chance for small business owners to begin building a long-term relationship with customers. It's about a real small business that doesn't have a lot of money and a marketing budget. It's an idea that Wellsville's Revitalization Committee has adopted to go along with their Shop Local campaign to introduce Wellsville's newest business. The committee is hoping that it will be the beginning to revive Wellsville's community spirit and attract customers and their dollars in support of the village's small business owners.
The event is planned for Saturday evening, March 10, from 6 to 9 PM. The “target” is the Village Grill located at 459 Main Street in Wellsville. The Village Grill recently opened for business in what use to be Kia's Wings. Revitalization Committee spokes woman Connie Carmichael invites the community to be part of Wellsville's first Cash Mob. Come down and meet the owners. All you need is a smile and a few dollars to buy something to eat. Wellsville Mayor Susan Haugh and Village Administrator Thom Edgell will be on hand to meet and greet all that stop by.
Bet the Mayor will revive some of her waitress days experience... You're invited to see and be part of the Wellsville business revitalization in their first ever Cash Mob event.
