What an incredibly great idea to help support a local business you want to see survive. Would love to know how Marn-yee Lee organized this cash mob. Is it just telling a few friends and hoping they do the same?

Now we just need a group do to this every weekend!
Kidding aside, I love this newly imagined grocery store. (I did, however, purposely stay away from it this past weekend because I thought the cash mob might spur my claustrophobia and that the shelves might be empty anyway when I got there!) I will continue to frequent this store, however!

It's more than just telling a few friends, although that's part of it. She worked at it, set up a web site Web Link and put it on her Facebook page, informed friends, got it written up in the Mountain View Voice, etc.

I would love to organize more of this to bring more awareness to our local businesses, and to build up a close-knit community. Please email me at email@example.com if you're interested in seeing certain businesses supported, would like to help, or have any other suggestion!
