Venture Local Franklin's cash mob stormed Mossy Oak on Main Street recently.
With 44 mobsters, members of the community pledged to spend $20 at the locally owned business.
The idea of the cash mobs is to encourage the community to support Franklin's small, locally owned businesses by spending their money ($20 minimum commitment), en masse, to give the business owner a little bit of an economic boost.
Martha Holbrooks, owner of Mossy Oak, donated a percentage of the cash mob sales to the Franklin High School Band as her way of “paying it forward.”
The next cash mob is scheduled for 6 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 18, at Robyn B, a children's clothing store located on Main Street.
Businesses selected as locations for cash mobs are randomly drawn at the end of each mob and are the suggestions of those in attendance.
