Western Maine Cash Mob Hits Norway Farmer’s Market

Norway, Maine –  Thursday, September 26, 2013 Western Maine Cash Mob, organized by W.J. Wheeler Insurance Agency, met at the Norway Municipal Parking Lot.  A total of 72 people anxiously waited to hear where they would be shopping.  Armed with their $20 bills everyone mobbed the Norway Farmer’s Market.

The mobbers spent a total of $1151.72 in less than an hour, helping stimulate the local economy while having a blast with other community members.  Not only does the Cash Mob help the business being mobbed that one time but it also introduces new people that may have never gone to the market before and will hopefully return again.

All of the food was purchased from local farmers and stores, including Fare Share Co-op, Crestholm Farm, LolliPapa, Moose Pond Arts, and many others,” says Karley Estes, Marketing Specialist at W.J.

Cash Mob Hits Maine Line Products!!

 2013-05-18 MOBBED

Sometimes, good things really do come in small packages. Last Saturday, May 18th, 24 mobbers made their way to Maine Line Products in Greenwood, ME. While the turnout was smaller, together, the mobbers still spent $476! Can you imagine even just 24 people mabbing your small local business?

Although this mob was smaller than our past mobs, it still accomplished the core cash mob goals: a local business received a boost in sales; locals had an opportunity to socialize and meet new people; and a good time was had by all.

Maine Line Products located on Main St. in Greenwood, Maine, offers Maine-made and Maine inspired products. In addition, they specialize in wooden products, in particular Woodman’s Weathersticks and handmade wooden crates.  They also make their own fudge right there in the store, it is said to be the best in town!

 After mobbing Maine Line Products, everyone enjoyed an after party sponsored by Great Falls Insurance. Wraps and cookies were provided by The Good Food Store. Everyone who attended received a free reusable Cash Mob tote bag.

There was a drawing held at the aftermob party where people won gift certificates and other prizes.

We had an awsome time, hope you can join us for the next one, June 22nd!
