The Van Wert Cash Mob is inviting the entire community to meet this Thursday, January 31 to shop at a locally owned, independent business. Everyone interested in participating is encouraged to meet in the downtown parking lot at the corner of Central Ave. and Washington St. at 5:15 p.m. on Thursday. The selected business which the Cash Mob voted for last month is kept a secret until then. Once the store is announced, everyone will walk or drive to that business to shop together. Organizers promise that this Thursday's store will have something for everyone. Don't forget also to join us at the AfterMob for a drink or bite to eat and vote for the business to mob in February.

The Van Wert Cash Mob is a group of local community members who gather once a month to show combined support of a locally owned business. They are simply community residents who enjoy meeting the owners of different independent stores and restaurants throughout Van Wert and discovering all that these stores offer in products and services. To join the fun, simply meet on Thursday and pledge to spend just $10 at the local business that is announced. This monthly event is open to the public and all are invited to participate.
