Cash Mob surprises Mustang businesses
MUSTANG — It started with a meeting and turned into an afternoon one local business won't forget. Then people in Mustang pile into a shuttle and surprise a store manager with a group of willing customers. Factory Connection in Mustang got a visit from a Cash Mob. In a town of just 12-square-miles it is a way to encourage buying local. 65 percent of Mustang residents work in other cities and with so many people leaving town for work and other activities the city worries about its shops staying in business. The Cash Mob is about spreading the word, spending money and having fun. Each shopper pledges to spend $20 and hopefully keep coming back to keep their money and Mustang.
