Town Square

Cash mob hits downtown Pleasanton at 6 p.m. tomorrow

Original post made on Feb 18, 2013

The Cash Mob is at it again. These groups that meet to patronize a specific local business have been popping up across the country, and Downtown Pleasanton is no exception. The Pleasanton Downtown Association (PDA) began hosting Cash Mob events last year, and after a short holiday hiatus, brought the event back in January at Passionate Athlete. The second Cash Mob of 2013 will be on Wednesday, Feb. 20. All shoppers interested in participating should meet at the Museum on Main, 603 Main St. at 6 p.m. to learn the secret shopping location for the night. Then, the group will walk together to the downtown location and shop together. Shoppers are encouraged to spend $20, meet their fellow "mobbers" and have fun. If you cannot make it to the Museum please check the PDA's Facebook page for the selected business and address. For more information, visit the PDA's Facebook page, join the Downtown Pleasanton Cash Mob group on MeetUp.com or call the PDA at (925) 484-2199.

Cash Mob. Great idea. Just keep your eyes open for pick pockets and thieves. Large crowds attract "all" kinds of people.
