Cash Mob St Paul MN’s first event occurred on Thursday, July 19th. We met at Something New in the Park a delightful artist cooperative gift shop. Alas, we were a mini-mob but very dedicated. Our east metro version of the Mob For Good’s mission to support locally-owned businesses. Sorry, no chain stores or franchises qualify even if a local person owns them. We focus on the places where new customers really have a positive impact. We want to help them survive during the prolonged economic difficulties.

Something New is a enchanting store. It offers an array of jewelry, funky craft items, clothing, and charming what-nots. Perfect place to procure a gift or a fun item for yourself. Friendly workers and options to customize the merchandise (since the artist is local). Something New is located at 2301 Como Avenue, Suite 101, St Paul, MN 55108. It is at the corner of Como and Doswell Avenues in the St. Anthony Park area of St. Paul, near the State Fairgrounds and University of Minnesota-St. Paul Campus. It is downstairs in the Healy Building, kitty corner from Speedy Market. Street parking is available and on the bus-line. Contact or call 651-646-2423 for details.

Please visit Something New soon and let the cashier know that you were referred by Cash Mob St Paul MN. Join our Facebook page and get notified of future events. Tell your friends and family and we will increase the positive impact upon the businesses we patronize.

Our next mob is scheduled for Wednesday, August 22nd at 6pm. Location TBD…

Keep on Mobbing!
