'Ca$h Mob' on its Way to West Newton

Following in Auburndale's footsteps, the West Newton community will hold a "Ca$h Mob" event to support small business.

First spotted in Auburndale earlier this month, the Newton "Ca$h Mob" is making its way to West Newton. 

The event, which looks to promote local small businesses, encourages residents to bring $10 (or more) to spend at West Newton businesses from 10 a.m. - 11 a.m. on Saturday, Dec. 8.

According to an email sent to Newton Patch by Alderman Greer Tan Swiston, shoppers are encouraged to visit businesses from Parsons Street to the Mass Pike off-ramp, as well as retailers on Boarder Street, Elm Street and Watertown Street. 

Those who are interested in participating in the Ca$h Mob can meet at the "start location" at Morningsilver Gallery at 10 a.m. The "end location" will be at Keltic Krust at 11 a.m., the email said.

The Ca$h Mob idea was first launched in Auburndale on Nov. 10 by the Newton-Needham Chamber of Commerce. Similar to the West Newton event, locals were encouraged to spend $10 or more at any Auburndale business.

Auburndale's Ca$h Mob coincided with the launch of which asks residents to purchase at least three items this holiday season at a local business, rather than buying it online or out of town.
