FOR RELEASE: Immediate


MARION, OH– The final Cash Mob for 2012 will be an all day affair on South Main Street this Thursday, October 25. Organized by Downtown Marion and the Marion Young Professionals, the Cash Mobs have been very well received by the businesses involved … and those who come to participate, as well. It was decided to do an all-day event to give people the opportunity to participate on their lunch hour as well as after work.

“A Cash Mob,” said Karen Herr, manager of Downtown Marion, “is a group of people who go en mass to support a local business – or in this case, multiple businesses.” Generally, Herr said, each person in the mob is asked to spend at least $10 in that location.  In this case, you can have breakfast or lunch at Baires, lunch or dinner at Maury’s On Main, and stop into a variety of businesses along the way.   “I think you’ll be surprised,” said Herr, “at the variety to be found on South Main Street.  Present and Past Home Décor is reminiscent of many stores found in Delaware with collectibles, Amish furniture, and some antiques.  Curiosity also has many collectibles that range from pocketknives to lighters, from Klingon batlifs to mid-evil daggers, and beer steins to Avon decanters.
