Cash Mob Coming To Town

BIG FLATS---(WENY) The Group: Business Excellence of the Southern Tier, is hosting it's first ever Cash Mob at The Cottage Gift Shop off of Route 352 in Big Flats Saturday. If you're wondering what a cash mob is, its when a "mob" of people show up at a certain time and spend twenty dollars or more at a pre-determined location. It's designed to be a fun way to promote local businesses and keep the local economy going. Tom Gorman, secretary and treasurer of BEST and owner of The Cottage Gift Shop tells us it's a great way for customers to save as well and said, "Everything in the store is 20% off tomorrow and we're having a special on Corning Wax Wear Candles, those are gonna be 3 for $20, tax included. And we're gonna have refreshments, and we're gonna give away a Jim Shore figurine."
