Register For The Downtown Mystic Cash Mob

Celebrate the new sidewalks, get some holiday shopping done early and support the local businesses during the cash mob this October.

Shhh…here’s a secret. , Groton Patch and the are planning a cash mob for downtown Mystic. You know, sort of like those flash mobs that keep popping up, only better. We’re asking southeastern Connecticut residents to pledge to spend at least $20 on Saturday, October 13 in downtown Mystic.

Here’s what you need to know:

On Saturday October 13, everyone who wants to participate will gather at between 9:30 and 10:30 a.m. We are taking advanced registrations on Patch. All you need to register is your email address and zip code. Everyone will get a Cash Mob button identifying him or her as a mobster.

From 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. we’ll shop at the businesses participating in the cash mob. After 11:30 a.m. we hope you enjoy lunch somewhere in downtown Mystic where participating restaurants will be collecting the buttons.

Admit it, you avoided downtown Mystic this summer. Between hectic schedules, the Mystic Streetscape Project and the normal summer traffic it was just easier to get on I-95 than drive through downtown. But now’s the time for locals to go back downtown, to stroll the new sidewalks, say hello to your favorite local businesses and do some shopping.

Oh and please don’t keep this secret to yourself share it with your friends and family by email, on Facebook and on Twitter with the #mysticmob.

Hope to see you there.

I wonder if the new fountain is for sale. That'd look good in my backyard. ;)

I think this is a great idea to support the local economy, and I do avoid downtown Mystic in the summer like the plague. What do the buttons mean?

Thanks Doreen. We hope if it goes well we can do it other places as well such as the Olde Mistick Village. We actually are not doing the buttons anymore. At first we were going to use them to help the businesses identify mobsters, but now when you sign in for the cash mob at Wide World of Bagels you will be given a list of the participating business and the coupons they are offering the mobsters so there was no need for the buttons.
