Shop Local First Cash Mob Sept. 12

Shop Local First Cash Mob Sept. 12

Shop Local First’s September Cash Mob spree will begin at 11 a.m., Saturday, Sept. 12, at the gazebo on the square.

The theme for this month’s event is Fall Festival, to recognize the Macoupin County Historical Society’s autumn arts and crafts fair at the Anderson estate the following weekend.

Shoppers who attend the Cash Mob write their names on a piece of paper in order to win one of three $20 gift certificates in a random drawing at the gazebo before the spree begins. One of the shoppers also will draw the name of the retailer where the group will shop, with the suggestion that each person spend $20 or more.

All shoppers will be invited to gather afterward for lunch at Abella’s Restaurant.

Eventually, after all SLF member retailers have been “mobbed,” the process will start over, with a fresh name being drawn at each successive Cash Mob spree.
