Have cash, will mob

The Sandy Area Chamber of Commerce is conducting another Cash Mob Saturday


by: CONTRIBUTED PHOTO:  - Pictured at Creative Visions Landscapes Water Garden Center and Outdoor Showroom in Boring are Debbie Grimes, left, and Lisa Foster, members of the Sandy Area Chamber of Commerce. The chamber is assisting small local businesses with a monthly Cash Mob; the next one is Saturday, June 15.Not many local businesses can boast that they occupy nearly an acre of land. But the owners of Creative Visions Landscapes Water Garden Center and Outdoor Showroom can, in truth, say that.

The landscapers’ heaven is located on Orient Drive in Boring, and is the subject of a Cash Mob to be staged Saturday by a committee of the Sandy Area Chamber of Commerce.

Members of the committee are asking local residents to help them with the Cash Mob by visiting the chamber-member business between 11 a.m. and noon Saturday, June 15, and making a purchase.

Randy DeLaunay has been landscaping local and regional residences and businesses for 24 years.

He and his wife, Dori, have added materials, supplies and accessories that anyone would need to include a water feature or pond in a landscaped yard.

But it’s even more.

On their acre, they showcase the kind of work Randy DeLaunay can do in anyone’s yard.

The showcase includes simple or elaborate water features, artistic bubblers, waterfalls flowing into fish-filled ponds, patios with fireplace, and landscaped areas.

Distributed around their land are full-size demonstration plots — enough to make anyone want to get to work on their yard.

Bring dad in Saturday, and don’t forget the 20 percent off coupon on the website at creativevisionslandscape.com by clicking on the “Specials” at the left side of the home page.

Saturday also is free koi day, which means starting at 10 a.m. there’ll be one free koi for each of the first 100 families.

Recognizing the explosive nature of the growth of cash mobbing, the Sandy Area Chamber of Commerce has planned more cash mobs for the third Saturday of each month. Each will be announced in The Post and on the chamber’s website about four days in advance.
