MACHIAS, Maine — A second monthly Cash Mob, hosted by the Machias Revitalization Committee, will be held at Machias Hardware on Main Street, from 5-6 p.m. Wednesday, March 13.
A Cash Mob is an opportunity for local people to show their support for community-based businesses by arriving at the event and spending a bit of cash. Any size purchase is acceptable. At the Committee’s first event last month, held at Parlin’s Flowers and Gifts on Dublin Street, about $1,000 was spent, giving a winter-weary business a shot in the arm at the time of the year when it is needed most.
The Machias Revitalization Committee plans on hosting Cash Mobs once a month at a wide variety of local businesses. For more information, call 263.8859.
