Shop Local Union City is hosting another event in their recurring "cash mob" series.
From noon to 2 p.m. today, the City of Union City and Chamber of Commerce collaborative program is encouraging community members to visit Purple Monkey Yoga.
“A cash mob is a group of people who assemble at a local business to make purchases,” according to the City of Union City. “The purpose of these mobs is to support both the local businesses and the overall community.”
According to the City of Union City, the yoga studio will be offering specials for those who sign up for classes. Refreshments will also be provided.
Purple Monkey Yoga is located at 3961 Horner St.
The Shop Local program kicked off the cash mobs early last month. Previous cash mobs have been held at Chaplin's Sports Bistro, Texas Roadhouse and Mr. Kebab.
The cash mobs are just one of the many components of Shop Local Union City. The program allows consumers to enroll in a free rapid rewards program and get cash-back for shopping at participating businesses. Meanwhile, participating businesses receive free exposure via social media promotions, direct marketing campaigns and events like cash mobs.
