Next Issaquah cash mob to descend on Fischer Meats

June 19, 2012

Issaquah Chamber of Commerce leaders have asked merchants and shoppers to prepare for another cash mob.

The event is planned to occur at Fischer Meats, 85 Front St. N., at 4 p.m. June 21, as part of National Small Business Week.

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 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. The next cash mob occurred at Sisters Antiques.
