August 10, 2012
Cash Mob Sherwood is organizing its sixth “Cash Mob” event this Saturday, Aug 11th at 11:00am in Sherwood. The growing group of local residents and fellow business owners welcome everyone to join the monthly movement by showing-up and participating.  This months mob will take place at Symposium Coffee House in Old Town, recently awarded “Small Business of the Year”  2011-2012 by the Sherwood Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Center for their outstanding leadership, this makes a great opportunity to come out and give this locally owned coffee shop a shot of support!

As part of their Shop Local movement, Cash Mob Sherwood, organized by local resident and businessperson Amber Gardner, co-owner of Gardner Team Real Estate who volunteers alongside many committed local patrons, encourages people who want to participate in their community to show up and refocus at approximately $20 of their current spending to support local businesses instead of buying online or at the big-box chains. Even if you don’t drink coffee, consider buying tea, a fresh baked treat, gift certificate for yourself, a friend or to donate to an upcoming charity auction.

Small businesses all over America have seen cash mobs pop up in their hometowns.  Sherwood businesses have welcomed the mob with open arms as they typically see double normal sales if not much more on a given cash mob day.  While each Sherwood cash mob seems to vary in size from a couple dozen people to over a hundred, the goal is to give local businesses more exposure to the masses while consistently growing the efforts of the mob -- the more people who attend and frequent area establishments equates to greater success in supporting local businesses and the community at large.  And, the communities support doesn’t go unnoticed, giveaways are also offered at each cash mob to the first 20 people who make a transaction at Cash Mob Sherwood events. 

Cash Mobs in Sherwood happen once a month and are part of a call-to-action to stimulate our local economy. Each month the next business to be mobbed is randomly drawn by the previous business hit, giving all local businesses nominated a fair opportunity while adding to the suspense and excitement of each future mob while helping to build a stronger, greater sense of community.

The Sherwood Cash Mob is fueled by social media channels such as Facebook, Twitter and good old fashioned word of mouth. To find out when and where the local Cash Mob will be popping up next, go to www.CashMobSherwood.com and www.facebook.com/cashmobsherwood.  You can also email Amber Gardner at amber@gardnerteam.net if you’d like to nominate a locally owned business in Sherwood to be added to the cash mob list.

<![CDATA[Cash Mob Sherwood Sets Date for Next Mob!]]>Thu, 05 Apr 2012 02:33:14 GMThttp://www.cashmobsherwood.com/hit-list/cash-mob-sherwood-sets-date-for-next-mob
Cash Mob Sherwood Sets Date for Next Mob
Today, Cash Mob Sherwood set the time, date and location for the next hit is scheduled for Saturday, April 14th at 11:00 am.  The location will be in Sherwood to support another locally owned business.  In true Cash Mob style no announcements will be made until 24 hours prior.  The official release will be on the facebook page and updated right here on this post.

Last Months Cash Mob
Cash Mob Sherwood launched their first mob and descended upon Sweet Story, a locally owned bakery in Old Town Sherwood.  Approximately 100 mobbers took action on their local economy by supporting this locally owned business in the Sherwood community together.  The owner of Sweet Story, Michelle Howard was beside herself with the outcome that day. The repeat business since the mob on March 17th has also provided a ripple effect.  Money spent here stays here longer - we're not only doing others a service by shopping local, we're helping add vibrancy and value to where we live.

The Selection Process
On Monday we popped in on Michelle Howard to say hello and request her assistance in randomly drawing a name from the locally owned businesses nominated so far.  Each cash mob card has a business name on the opposite side. We asked Michelle to select one and hold it out front so she couldn't see it and we snapped a photo.  She has no idea who she drew and will be passing the torch to -- but we're sure excited to show her picture holding up the name of the next business on our "hit list" when we make the big reveal to the mobbers ready to unite and take action... So exciting! 

When the announcement of the date and time was made and shared around facebook today, Michelle shared with one of us her excitement... She said, "I'm dying to know who the next "hit" will be!!! It was soooooo much fun for us at SweetStory! An amazing experience I can't wait for others to have!" -- Thank you Michelle.  We couldn't agree more!

Tell your friends & bring your friends.
Please tell your friends, share this post, like the facebook page -- this is a more the merrier Sherwood event and it takes mobbers like YOU to help our businesses get the exposure and help they need.  "Mom and Pops rely on our support and our community relies on our Mom and Pops!"

When we each do a little, we all do a lot!!  Official announcement on the 13th right here and on the facebook page.  Then we'll see ya on April 14th at 11:00 am at..... Stay tuned!
Cash Mob asks Michell Howard from Sweet Story Bakery in Sherwood to draw the next hit... Who will it be?
<![CDATA[Cash Mob Sherwood's First Hit a Sweet Success!]]>Mon, 19 Mar 2012 17:20:08 GMThttp://www.cashmobsherwood.com/hit-list/cash-mob-sherwood-hits-first-local-business
Cash Mob Sherwood's first "hit" was a "hit"
The first mob was scheduled for March 17th.  Everyone was asked to start rolling in at 2:00 pm at Sweet Story in Old Town Sherwood and overall, approximately 100 mobbers from all over and of all ages came in to support this locally owned Sherwood business.  The aftermath... A VERY FUN and heartwarming experience. The Howard family, owners of Sweet Story in Sherwood and their staff were thrilled with the outcome, and extremely appreciative of the support. 

People came from all over and many experienced Sweet Story for the first time!
While many mobbers came from Sherwood and the surrounding area, there was one specifically that we spoke with who was a student from the University of Oregon.  Together with her friends visiting the area, they came by in support of this movement and were one of many who experienced Sweet Story for the first time.  They were moved by the communities support and inspired by the idea that this concept could give to their local businesses in the Eugene area the support they need during these tough economic times. They plan to share their experience in Sherwood on Saturday with a leadership group on campus.  We wish them much success and are here to help extend support in any way we can!

Hear what Sweet Story has to say about you mobbers out there
Following the mob we later found out it was Sweet Stories 6 month anniversary when they were mobbed.  Michelle Howard, owner of Sweet Story in Sherwood, Oregon said, "it was the best gift she could have asked for!" 

To really put it in perspective, Sweet Story shared on the Cash Mob Sherwood Facebook wall... "it was the biggest day in sales our store has ever had and that means a lot to Daron and I. It's easy to forget what it takes for small businesses to stay in business but days like yesterday mean that I am able to pay my rent and utilities for another month. I truly appreciate everyone who came out and "mobbed" us!

Sweet Story staff, LeAnn Brown said... "This was amazing! I work at Sweet Story, and I can't tell you how much fun we had serving all of the wonderful people who came out to support Michele and her family. I was still smiling after everyone left! Thanks, Cash Mob and everyone who supports it!"

Join the mob and help make a difference
If it had to be summed up in five words, Mobbers YOU made a difference!  When we each do a little, we all do a lot!  And remember, the more mobbers the merrier!  Please follow us on facebook and twitter to see when the next mob is scheduled to take place and which locally owned Sherwood business has been selected. Spread the word to all your friends and get ready rally together to mob them with support!  We look forward to seeing you soon!
