Jax Cash Mob Kicks Off The Holidays With Local Friday



Jax Cash Mob officially renames ?Black Friday? as ?Local Friday? when the next Jax Cash Mob descends upon San Marco Square Friday November 23rd.  Participants will meet at 11AM outside Maple Street Biscuit Company located at 2004 San Marco Blvd.  At that time, we?ll unveil the target store and each ?mobber? will spend $10-20 at this locally owned small business.  After the mob, participants will reconvene back at Maple Street Biscuit Company for lunch and socializing.

Mike has done a wonderful thing for local businesses in the Jax area.
We were lucky to have also been a beneficiary as a non-profit (PSOS) and received hundreds of dollars of much needed equipment and supplies to keep our mission alive of saving the houses.

Kudos for the continued work and thank you!

I was just walking around the Square talking to the merchants.  They are VERY excited about the cash mob, and thankful for everyone's support.  The biscuit company promises to have loads of warm biscuits - and since we are a walkable area, don't worry about the calories.  You will burn them off as you enjoy the area.

Thanks to everyone that came out.
We had a lot of media coverage.  All three news stations ran segments on the cash mob and Folio will also have coverage next week. 

Get out and support your local small businesses this holiday season!

Folio also has some pictures in it's print version this week.

If you don't follow Jax Cash Mob on Facebook, then why not?

Regardless, when shopping for the holidays... consider choosing local first. 

Thanks for everyone's support!

We're conducting a survey and could use the input of previous cash mob participants. 
Please take a few moments to visit this link and give me your thoughts:
