Sept. 21 is cash mob Saturday in Sandy
Chamber of Commerce asks local residents for help
The Sandy Area Chamber of Commerce conducts its traditional cash mob on the third Saturday of each month.
A cash mob which includes anyone who wants to support independent, locally owned businesses is scheduled to do its work from 11 a.m. to noon Saturday, Sept. 21. Each voluntary participant is being asked to bring $5, $10 or $20 to make a purchase at the mobbed business, which this month is the thrift shop at the Sandy Community Action Center, 38982 Pioneer Blvd.
The Action Center has been cleaned, stripped, painted and has new shelves and clothing racks.
The thrift store helps support the nonprofit organizations role as a hunger-relief agency that provides food and clothing for low-income families.
A committee of the Sandy Area Chamber of Commerce stages a cash mob each month at a different business.
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, Sept. 21, and making a purchase.
Recognizing the explosive nature of the growth of cash mobbing, the chamber has planned more cash mobs for the third Saturday of each month. Each is announced in The Post and on the chambers website about four days in advance.
