Held every month on the third Saturday, Cash Mobs are a unique way to support local. Interested participants gather at the Chamber office (119 South Broad Street, Grove City, PA) at 10:30 AM with at least $20 of their own money that they are willing to spend at a locally owned business. The Chamber doesn’t reveal the target business until after the mob has formed. Once the target business is revealed, the Cash Mob descends upon that business and spends their money there. Cash Mobs spur the local economy and have been known to produce holiday like sales figures on random Saturdays. The Grove City Chamber is excited to be the first Chamber in the area to bring this idea to its community and has had a lot of fun with the concept and generating thousands of dollars in the community for local businesses!
