Manzanita Cash Mob

Come Join the Manzanita Businesses and Tillamook Area Chamber of Commerce for the Manzanita’s Cash Mob! Help Manzanita continue to heal by supporting our local businesses and our community overall! Get your holiday shopping done early!

What is a Cash Mob?
A Cash Mob is where the community rally’s around local business and commits to shopping at the designated location. A cash mob is designed with one thing in mind SUPPORT A LOCALLY OWNED BUSINESS! (Okay two things, HAVING FUN is also important!)

Why be a part of Manzanita Cash Mob?
Supporting a local business generates more than the average person sees. Supporting these businesses does not only help their store, but also allows them to hire service workers such as accountants, plumbers and cleaners. Although directly you may never see it, this could be the shot in the arm that business needs to make it through the month.

Are we on our own or do we meet somewhere?
The Manzanita Mob runs from 11am to 4pm and you are welcome to show up and shop as you please. However, we encourage you to meet at the Manzanita Visitor Center at 11am. Starting out as a large group beings a sense of excitement and collaboration for not only you the shopper but the businesses. Manzanita business owners are people too and could use a good moral boost after the last few weeks.

What if I don’t need anything from the local shops in Manzanita?
Unfortunately, this may happen. What we ask is that if you attend a cash mob that you spend a minimum of $25 regardless. You could buy something for someone else. Or, even just buy a gift certificate for a later date.

Are there any incentives for shopping at the Manzanita Cash Mob? First and foremost, you can expect the business owner’s deep appreciation! But there are incentives to shopping during the Manzanita Cash Mob: First is that you can count on multiple local retail shops holding drawings with awesome prizes. Second, if you bring $50 in receipts back to the Manzanita Visitor Center we will give you a ticket for a FREE meal at one of many participating restaurants.
