I just saw this interesting notice on Yelp about a Chicago "Cash Mob" event that helps benefit a small local retailer. This will take place on the evening of Wednesday,January 4 from 6-7pm. Participants are asked to come to a local meeting point where each agree to spend at least $20 at the selected locally owned small business. It sounds like a fun idea to help boost the local economy. You can see more details on the yelp site under Chicago Cash Mob. Anyone heard of this or are you going to attend?
