Elwood Chamber CashMobCash Mobs have become quite popular across the country. If you are not familiar with what they are, a cash mob is a group of people who assemble at a local business to make purchases with the intent to support both the local business and the overall community.

The goal is to have a “mob” of citizens support this local business on this specific day by spending at least $10 with them. Dedicated community members help the businesses they love, add value to their community businesses, and attract new customers.

The benefits that local businesses gain from successful cash mobs are not just a one-day influx of cash. They provide an opportunity to gain new customers and reacquaint with previous customers.

Every other month, the Elwood Chamber of Commerce will draw a current Chamber member at random to participate in that month’s CASH MOB. We see it as one more way of thanking our participating Chamber members and supporting the local Elwood economy.

For those chamber members attending the CASH MOB please drop off a business card for a chance to win a “FREE” gift card.
