Cash Mob event at the Crossroads Shopping


Mayor Felipe Hernandez will be hosting the first ever Cash Mob event at the Crossroads Shopping Center in Watsonville. It will take place on Thursday, March 10th, from 4pm to 8pm. The Cash Mob will continue rain or shine. The displaced stores will be open extended hours until 8pm that evening and will have everything on sale from 20% to 45% off. A cash mob is like a flash mob, participants bring $50 cash (any amount is fine) to spend at the displaced stores within the 4 hour time frame. Mayor Felipe Hernandez said, “I want to create a “Black Friday” situation in terms of sales this Thursday for the eight businesses.”

Watsonville is a community that supports their local small businesses, so we encourage everyone to come out and support these loyal and local small businesses. Hernandez said, “I’ve always been an advocate of local businesses and some of these businesses like Jansen Music Store have been in town for 92 years and Crossroads Bookstore has been here for over 22 years, so we need to support them in this time of need.” Benefits of shopping local is it provides increased sales tax revenues to pay for things like skate parks, soccer fields, dog parks, trails and libraries that increase quality of life for residents.

It’s up to us to keep our local businesses going and make a positive impact on our economy. “When we each do a little, we all do a lot,” said Hernandez. You can find the event page for details on Facebook at: CashMob@CrossroadsWatsonville.
