Cash mob planned in Ellwood City

NEW CASTLE — Ellwood City will host a cash mob in the downtown Saturday.

Members of the public are being invited to participate in the event, where people gather with the intention of spending $20 each on goods or services at a specific downtown business.

Participants in the cash mob will gather at 11 a.m. at the Ellwood City Plaza on Lawrence Avenue. The designated business to be targeted by the cash mob will be revealed at that time.

Organizers note the downtown has eight new businesses this year.

The purpose of a cash mob is to promote downtown businesses and to familiarize residents with shopping opportunities in the area.

Yes, but I’m basically just thinking out loud.
No, that would be weird.
I don’t know. Next time I’m alone, I’ll ask.
