Atladena's second attempt at a "cash mob" occurred yesterday at WFS, after a build-up of about a week's duration in our local newsblogs. This mob, actually spread out throughout the day, provided a needed boost to our daily sales. Saying that I'm grateful is an understatement - I can say that we're unequivocally floored by the kindness shown us yesterday!
The idea of cash mobs came up as a reaction to the news that Altadena will be getting a new Walmart Neighborhood Market on Lincoln and Figueroa and possibly a second one at Lake and Calaveras. The Save Altadena group wants to support local business. Some doubt that it will be sustainable, but we've heard the naysayers before, and we're not daunted. This cash mobbing is a fantastic way for our townspeople to get to know our local businesses, to help support them now and hopefully, in the future. I can say for certain that it made our day, our week and probably, our month. It's a great thing to do in summer, when sales are slow and business is welcome. Remember -
Spin Off Records on Lincoln - stay tuned to our Facebook page to find out when it will be.
Stay cool this week, friends! We'll talk next week....
