“We did the equivalent of a Christmas shopping day in 45 minutes.”

John Reburn, in Roanoke, Virginia, owns a letterpress and silk-screening shop called Appalachia Press.  He was hit by a Cash Mob on Wednesday.  Arizona Central interviewed him and he had a great quote about what a Cash Mob can do for a local business:

“We did the equivalent of a Christmas shopping day in 45 minutes.”

This is the kind of amazing thing that can happen for local businesses when community members stand up and decide that they’re going to take responsibility for the health and vibrancy of their community.  The Roanoke organizers deserve a hearty round of applause – great job Virginia!

  1. Great job, Roanoke!!

    Very exciting to see Cash Mobs sprouting up and getting bigger and bigger. Here in St. Petersburg, Fla, we had our third yesterday. And we had the largest turnout yet, with close to 40 people.
