March 19, 2013. The eighth organized “cash mob” in Watauga County will visit Black Bear Books at the Boone Mall (1180 Blowing Rock Road) and then go to lunch at Tucker’s Café, also in the Boone Mall, on Saturday, March 23.
The cash mob will gather at Black Bear Books at 11 a.m. for shopping. Black Bear is in the space previously occupied by Waldenbooks in the Mall. The store offers a broad range of fiction and non-fiction, a stand-alone coffee bar, and a big selection of knitting supplies (yarns of all kinds and colors).
Tucker’s Café (Suite D4 at the Boone Mall) offers a broad range of classic American burgers and fries, salads, quesadillas, and vegetarian options. The cash mob expects to be here between noon and 12:30.
A cash mob is described as an organized infusion of economic stimulus into local businesses for the good of the whole community. The Watauga County cash mobs are being sponsored by the local Democratic Party as part of a “buy local” movement nationally.
