Cash Mob in Camden!

Cash Mob in Camden!

Camden, Maine will hold its first Cash Mob on Monday August 20th at 4:30PM in the Village Green.  Participants will learn at that time which store is being “mobbed” and then proceed to shop at that business.  Camden Development Director, Brian Hodges, first created the Facebook page for Cash Mob Camden on Friday July 27th and within 2 weeks, nearly 200 Likes have been acquired.  “I’m so pleased with the level of support and enthusiasm being shown for this.  Cash mobs have been successfully held in other parts of Maine, and around the world, so it seemed like a natural fit for Camden to start one in this region of midcoast Maine.”

Cash mob is a new trend in which people use social media to plan organized events, providing a way to join together and support local businesses.
