Sisters Antiques is the destination for the next Issaquah cash mob, organizers announced Wednesday.
In a cash mob, a group of people descends on a business to buy, buy, buy. The destination is revealed through social media services. Then, the mob pops up at the business to browse and shop.
The action is due to unfold at Sisters Antiques, 615 N.W. Gilman Blvd., at 4 p.m. May 23.
The organizers — Young Issaquah Professionals, or YIPPIES, 20- and 30-something business leaders in the Issaquah Chamber of Commerce — modeled the cash mob on similar events in other locales.
Organizers said most participants spend about $20 apiece, but any amount is acceptable.
The inaugural cash mob in Issaquah unfolded last month at Gilman Village merchant Lucky You. Mobbers purchased almost $3,000 in merchandise.
