MISHAWAKA, Ind. - You've likely all heard of flash mobs, where people randomly break out into dance in a public place--but have you ever heard of a cash mob?
On Saturday ABC 57 took a look at the first local "cash mob" where a large group of people gathered to spend some serious cash to help boost small business.
People showed up with cash-in-hand on Saturday to Sweet Street Caramel & Coffee Shop at University Park Mall in Mishawaka. About 30 people showed up to support the local business and the group is hoping the trend will catch on!
