Ohio CU chapter cash mobs a business
COLUMBUS, Ohio (7/5/12)--The Central Ohio Credit Union Chapter hosted its second in a series of cash mobs--an event in which people are encouraged to descend on a small business and spend money.

Hosted at The Peanut Shoppe, a long-standing small business in downtown Columbus, Ohio, a steady stream of downtown workers and credit union mob supporters helped bring dozens more customers to the shop, according to The Columbus Dispatch (June 22).

On a day with similar weather conditions, the shop had only one customer arrive between 11 a.m. and noon. On June 21, the shop served 30 customers at that time, the shop's owner told the newspaper.

The chapter said it hopes to see continued success each month because supporting local business is important to the mission of all credit unions, said the Ohio Credit Union League (E-Lumination Newsletter June 27).

The chapter has future cash mobs planned for a nursery, a restaurant, a chocolate shop and several other businesses.
