Southport Oak Island Cash Mob

FUN, SOCIAL and SUPPORTIVE.... Join the Mob..... The Cash Mob


What is a Cash Mob?
 A Cash Mob is similar to a Flash Mob but instead of sing/dancing it spends $20.00 as a way to support our locally owned shops. The Chamber will announce a general meeting location, date and time but the mob will not know where they are going until they arrive. 

Who Can Mob?  Mob members can be fellow chamber members, residents or visitors. The only rule is the Cash Mob participants agree to spend $20.00 at the retailer.

Mob Social: After the mob shops participants will be invited to follow the leader to socialize nearby for an adult beverage or sweet at one of our member pubs, wine shop, bakery, or ice cream (yogurt) parlor.

Schedule:  The Cash Mob will convene one day per month: January, February, March, April, May, September, October and December.  The day of the week can vary between Tuesdays, Wednesday & Thursday.

Location:  Chamber Staff will hold a drawing each month from all the member retail establishments that are independently owned and/or operated who also sell a variety of items that can be purchased for $20.00.  

Mob Nofication: The Chamber will maintain an e-mail database to notify mob participants as well as announce the mob's general meeting location and time on our Facebook, Google+ and on our website Events Calendar. The notification will let the mob know where to assemble but not the exact shop. If you would like to join the Cash Mob notification database, email your name, address and request to "Join the Mob" to karen@southport-oakisland.com or text SHOPBRUNSWICK to 22828.
