Fountain Valley Cash Mob has designated this Friday, June 12, as the date to rally customers to patronize two small businesses in Fountain Valley: Orange Coast Beauty Supply and Naugles Tacos & Burgers.
According to facilitator Lynn Seeden, a cash mob is "an event in which a large group of people descends on a single independent store in a coordinated shopping trip to give the local economy a little boost. Everyone brings $20 in cash with them to spend at the chosen shop. If 50 people show up to 'mob' the store for some great shopping, then the small-business owner benefits, the economy benefits, and the Cash Mob attendees feel good about helping their town!"
During a normal cash mob, patrons gather in a large group, $20 bill in hand, and "mob" a small business all at once to show financial support and community spirit to a locally owned establishment. Due to social distancing guidelines, current cash mobs allow for participants to visit anytime during the business' regular hours, spend at least $20, and post a selfie with your $20 bill in front of each targeted business. Make sure to tag your selfie with #fvcashmob.
