VILLE PLATTE — The Evangeline Chamber of Commerce unveiled a new way to prolong a supporting hand to neighborhood businesses on Wednesday — contacting it a “hard cash mob.”

The inaugural celebration took spot at the Industrial Assistance and Source Retailer on Lincoln Rd.

Tobin DeVille, executive director of the Chamber, told KATC what goes into a funds mob.

He stated that very similar to a flash mob, the dollars mob is an occasion where Chamber associates and citizens alike agree to meet up and focus on a random local enterprise as their “target.” Tobin reported the mob then storms the store by surprise and they expend about an hour browsing.

“The mission of the Evangeline Chamber of commerce is to generate people to store local, we want to recycle our overall economy here in Evangeline Parish,” says DeVille.

Sadie Fontenot, account manager at Industrial Company and Offer, has worked there for 11 several years. She stated she has never observed anything at all fairly like this.

“When we observed them all appear by means of the door, we were seriously psyched, you know,” claimed Fontenot. “We all kinda received up and wanted to see what was going on, and it was distinct.”

These interested in turning into a member of the up coming funds mob can indicator up at the Evangeline Chamber of Commerce’s Facebook webpage.
