Today’s shopper can conveniently purchase everything they need at one place, but it’s no surprise that buying from the “big box” store provides a luxury that negatively impacts the local economy.
The movement to support local businesses is giving our money a voice and a means to truly support our community. But how do we celebrate this idea? All over the nation, cash mobs are emerging as a creative way to get behind this movement. Here in our city, Syracuse First, an organization leading the charge for a vibrant local economy, is coordinating the very first “Cuse Mob”. Northside UP gets excited about any event that helps the local business community, but we are especially thrilled to announce that the first Syracuse cash mob will converge upon a Northside business! Craft Chemistry, a consignment art boutique & gallery that sells handmade goods from local designers, crafters and artists, has been declared the first “Cuse Mob” destination.
So, how do you join in?
This Saturday, at 12 p.m., meet the mob at 745 N. Salina St. Bring at least $10 cash, wear something orange (it’s a CUSE mob, after all!), and be ready to experience and shop at this one of a kind Syracuse treasure– Craft Chemistry!
