Support local business through a surprise-spending spree. We will focus on locally owned businesses in the Saint Paul and East Metropolitan area of the Twin Cities, Minnesota (Ramsey, Dakota, and Washington counties). Join our Facebook Community Page (Cash Mob St Paul MN) and spread the word by inviting your Facebook Friends to join our rabble of do-gooders.

Thank you to Cash Mob Minneapolis for inspiring this St Paul - East Metro version of a mob for good.

The goal is to periodically visit local small businesses with a surprise “Cash Mob.” A large group of people ventures into the shop together and spends money on what the business has to offer. We will patronize a variety of establishments including retail, restaurant, or whatever else fits our mission to support locally owned businesses (sorry, no chain stores or franchises qualify).

The cash mob rules are simple.
1. Spend $20 cash (more or less but cash does speed up the check out process)
2. Chat with three people that you don’t know but please bring along a friend or two
3. Enjoy yourself! We want this to be a fun experience for everyone

The date and time will be prescheduled so that you can reserve it on your calendar. Please forward the invitation, the more the merrier. We will periodically post a poll for YOU to help decide the next business to patronize and welcome suggestions. We will strive to host at least one event each month. The exact location will be announced a day or two beforehand. Of course, if weather interferes we will reschedule our mobbing. If you can’t attend that specific time/date, please visit the business on your own and identify yourself as a Cash Mob St Paul MN Member. Let’s have fun!

This is NOT a flash mob. We will be respectful to each other and the business owner. No mischief, mayhem, or damage is permitted. No spontaneous song and dance tunes. This community reserves the right to block access to people who act irresponsibly.

Thank you for your interest in this cash mob. Have a fabulous day!
