Cash Mob

CLAREMORE –The second Cash Mob of the season will be on Tuesday, May 14. Participating shoppers should meet at the Claremore Main Street office, 419 W. Will Rogers Blvd., by 5:30 p.m. This year’s Mobs are sponsored by Pelco Structural.

This year, stores will be chosen in advance but shoppers still won’t know until they arrive at the Cash Mob. Stores will provide snacks and goodies, and store owners will share a brief summary of their business’ story before shopping begins.

“We wanted Cash Mob to be more about the interaction between the merchant and the shopper,” said Nancy Fitts, Interim Director of Claremore Main Street. “It’s about supporting local, nabbing great finds and fostering community togetherness. We simply ask our shoppers to spend at least $20.00.”

The nonprofit Pay It Forward aspect of Cash Mob is changing as well. Instead of a little bit based on sales going to a local nonprofit, one nonprofit will receive a larger donation at the end of the year after collections have been gathered all year long.

“This allows us to make a larger impact to one nonprofit,” Fitts said. “Shoppers will still get a chance to vote for the winning nonprofit all year long and will receive one vote per $10 spent on Mob nights.”

Shoppers joining us for the first time will receive a free re-usable tote, quantities are limited. Shoppers who attend five of the six Cash Mob’s for the year will be entered into a drawing to receive a prize worth $300.

“We are fortunate to have Pelco Structural sponsoring Cash Mob in 2019,” Fitts said. “Their support of this community event has been unwavering since it began years ago.”
